    free DIY sewing pattern: wedge shaped seat bag

    I've posted a free sewing pattern for a basic seat pack. You can print the pieces out on regular paper, and there are comprehensive instructions with photos. You can use canvas, vinyl, cordura, upholstery facric, tweed (I hear tweed is the thing these days), etc. It's a great recycling /up-cycling project -you can use old bags, packs, luggage, jackets, banners, handbags, used inner tubes, etc (although the instructions also have a list of where to buy new materials). It's entirely possible that you can make one without even needing to spend any actual my eyes at all, so if you need one more Xmas gift but you blew your wad on Black Friday you'll be all set.
    The link is here: http://www.dillpicklegear.com/pickle...e-saddle-pack/
    The final assembly is a bit awkward, but it's fairly straightforward. You don't need a lot of sewing experience if you have some patience. Hopefully the instructions are clear enough.
    The pattern is free, but I only ask that if you use it you consider making a donation to Bikes NotBombs, League of American Bicyclists, or some other good cycling advocacy organization.

    League of American Wheelmen = League of American Bicyclists since 1994.

    Nice looking bag! Some recumbent-specific bag patterns would be nice...........

    Yeah, I'm just having a brain fart today.... I did know that. I'll plead having just talked about the Charles River Wheelmen and am apparently conflating the two.
    I edited the original post.

    Charges dismissed. Wheelmen, Wheelwomen, Wheelpeople, Bicyclists. It's all good.

    Radfahrer! Fietsryer! Ciclista! Txirrindulari! 騎自行車的人! Show our solidarity worldwide!

    On a more serious note, that's a pretty nice pattern. I actually have some janky bags laying around that I think I'll try and butcher for this project.

    Good luck! I hope you'll post before/after photos.
