Just got done making a bag for my pads. I got fancy (or my plans did, at least) and added a set of loops for my fishing pole and a ribbon of grograin for attachment ease. I used 1.7 nylon ripstop (in retrospect, much heavier than I needed) and filament nylon thread (which I hope to never have to use again).
Pretty fun, kept me busy all day. I also sewed a little pouch to put my tarp and ridgeline kit into, for practice. Nothing revolutionary in either design but I'm proud I manned up and made em. My wife spent an hour in near-hysterics at my use of paperclips to hold my hems aligned prior to sewing. I don't quite know why. It seemed to work perfectly well.
What do you think?
