It may not sound like a manly endeavor, but chicks dig a guy who can sew.
OK, maybe not all of them do. Mine does, because she gets cool stuff like 1 of a kind clothes and custom embroidered computer bags.

Manly? Believe so; supported by a co-worker who commented positively on seeing me in lycra -- over two years ago. She's such a TEASE!

Woman-hater? Naw, just don't feel up to putting up with the rest of the woman in order to get the punani.

Club? Can use it, but prefer a sword....

BTW, some homemade wheel covers would be nice. Made of something really cool, like goat or snake skin or something. I'm gonna learn to sew now.

Hey, I'll take a couple sets of those, one in red and one in black if you have the material.

Have you thought about knitting one in chunky wool yarn and then throwing it in the washing machine to felt it? That might be a cool way to get a nice durable bag.

cordura is pretty light strong and water resistant and holds it shape. if I knitted it, it would sag, plus the amount of time to knit vs using a fabric.

I really like sunbrella. but it is not as strong as cordura but it is nicer to touch and water resistant. and it cost a lot unfortunately

Sewing just never appealed to me. Home-Ec - (had to take) entailed an apron - ARGH that we had to model on stage (mine was pink btw) and the other project I made a stuffed alligator. I preferred to be out in the woods.

However I have mustered some simple curtains here and there, tried a funky skirt that was ... kinda fun. But I'll leave the sewing-masters to their craft, and admire what they produce.
