    I just come into ownership of a sewing machine. I plane to make me some stuff sacs since most do mine have worn out over the years. So far all I have seen was a costume for my little girl for a school play. I'll post the pics as soon as I find them.

    I used to make custom tool rolls for motorcycle riders. This one was built to specs for a guy in Germany that was going all over Africa for months. It eventually had thousands of miles and lots of use without a stitch coming lose.

    Well my sewing experience is ameture at best.. Nothing like some of the folks on here do! I have been machine and hand sewing mostly repairs for atleast 20 years now. I don't do it often enough to keep up to many skills.

    Wifey owns a decent sew/ embroidery machine I believe it a Brothers brand. So I do most my sewing on it now a days.

    Main projects we work on are:
    Handkerchiefs
    Scrub/ Buffont caps ( with embroidered name on front or back.
    Sun dresses
    Baby Blankets/ Quilts

    Near Future projects include:
    1x Baby Blanket
    2x Weighted Blankets ( If I can find some Multicam fabric)
    Probably some scrub caps
    Sundresses for the girls for summer.

    A few projects I actually took photos of.

    Purple blanket was the Wifeys 1st baby blanket I helped her make.
    Yellow Pooh blanket under the sleeping kiddo is one I made a few years ago.

    A friend just returned from Greenlamd and brought a seal skin home. I hand stitched this pouch for his Bible and iPad. 12"x18" with carved bone bead closure.

    Least favorite part is cutting out the pattern. Yes thats a trash bag. I use them for pattern paper. Never could find straight pins in multicam or tacticool so the dritz ones are what i use.

    Started a new pack today. 500D multicam. Started the straps and realized I didn't have enough 1" webbing to finish them so I had to place an order. I decided to add a dedicated pouch on the front for a pullout medical pouch. The pack is going to be 20" x 12" x 7". IMG_1688.JPG IMG_1689.JPG IMG_1692.JPG

    Nice!!! Really nice!!!

    Some day ill have to pick your brain on what foam for packs and where to get it. Ran into that same issue with needing webbing for a rifle case I was working on last week. Still need to make an order.
