    Ridgeline bag

    Looking for plans on ridgeline bags. I have some left over bug net and wanted to make a few bags out of it. I have hit search and haven't found to many plans.

    I want to make a version for my hammock and a version for my popup camper when going with the family. I found out 2 weekends ago I had no place to put some pain meds , small flashlight and cell phone . I could see maybe putting a couple of other small items in the bag on top of the others. This pic is my first attempt I just don't know if the velcro is strong enough to go over a bed end bar of the popup. I am thinking I should add some material on the ends for strength for the popup version. I also don't want the opening to flop open.

    They're not even really something that needs a pattern.

    I make mine by starting with a 14" tall piece of fabric, by however wide you want it (depends on pockets) For arguments sake, lets say 18"

    Roll hem all 4 sides

    Sew 1" channel in the top for your RL to pass through.

    Fold up the bottom edge until it meets the bottom of the channel, sew along the 2 sides, making one giant pocket. Divide as needed.

    The end result is a 7" tall RL Organizer, with 6" deep pockets


    I tend to make mine have a pocket for my RX meds, my kindle, and a flashlight :-)

    If you want them to be removable without messing with the RL, I find it far easier to use 2 mitten hooks (one on each top corner of the bag) and a Prusik knot wherever your attaching it to.

    If you simply want a bag, I'd still use a mitten hook and a Prusik

    Edit: Here's one I've had for a while, following the instructions above.

    I like the individual pocket idea
    My ego said, SURE you can.

    How does the mitton hook and Prusik work not following on how you attach that ? ON the ridgeline I can see the mitton hook with clip on to the line but what about going around a one inch pole in a camper. any pics?

    Nice job. I have that HK2001 organizer in my new hammock. Holds my wilderness essentioals, one of which is rather heavy. That is why HK2001 and I agreed the stronger nylon would be better than mesh. I have others that are mesh. I have some with glove hook connection. The ridge line sleeve is my preferred design if you plan on leaving it in place or adding heavy items.
