    The DIY bug bit me bad! I think I am infected!

    Hey there.....

    So I am in the same boat as a lot of you on here. I have really gotten into the whole DIY scene. I have been making tons of stuff lately. I just got done with a couple of stuff sacks and stake bags for myself. I have included a few pics. The big bag is for my stove kit that I am slowly working on too.

    Nice job Drum Man, stitching looks great. I joined HF for the same "DIY" reason!

    Nice looking work! Yeah it starts out small but sion you'll have stacks if fabric and spools of thread all over the place.

    You ain't kidding! My basement has enough down, fabric, and thread to clothe about 100 people. Let's not get into the rolls of Xpac and cuben. Sheesh.

    There is no antidote for it, only therapy (like making every piece of gear you can dream of, then starting over to make improvements on them)..
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Good job on the new "stuff". That Bug is really bag, I must say.
    This past Christmas, I got a thread injector and my Father-In-Law was amazed at my reaction....
    ...same as the kids with their presents.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
