    C'mon you tough manly men...who sews? I've hand sewn my whole life it seems. I'm always fixing buttons and stuffed animals(six kids). This week I bought myself a sewing machine to learn a new skill, and to make some of my own gear.

    So far I've made several things...some semi-failures. The highlights are a nifty little center zip pouch, and what I call the UmLiddy...a top lid pouch for my Umlindi. They're crude and missing some details I'd like for them to have when in the "final" stage...but they're a start lol.

    Those are some nice pouches!

    I know there is a couple of folks on here that are AMAZING with a sewing machine. (Not me)

    I personally have been sewing by machine and hand for at least 30 years.

    Doesn’t mean I am any good and “making” anything sewing. But I think I’m pretty decent at repair work. I have patched up a lot of gear, clothing, costumes, stuffed animals and furniture in that time.

    I honestly rather enjoy sewing repair work. I have made plenty of “unusable” items usable again with a little patience and I highly underrated skill.

    So tonight I did a thing. Yes, it's a miniaturized Tara Pocket...it docks right up to the front of my Umlindi. I made a pattern so I can perfect it when my Cordura comes.

    This one is in duck canvas.

    Tried it in essentially full-size this time. It's been fun mocking these up and practicing pattern making, but I've got plans for a much-improved front pocket for the Umlindi.

    Don't pay attention to the corners not fully popped out and a couple seam buggers lol. PXL_20210228_050556558.jpg
