Title: New Bag
Post by: wagsboyz on August 20, 2014, 06:56 PM
It seems that my recent kite buying over flowed my existing kite bag and I needed a new one.  I also found during a kite build that my sewing skills needed improvement so this is what I made...  Might look familiar to some...

Very nice.  Well done. 

I been working on a bag for my new revs.  Hope to get it finished soon.  Always getting interruptions.  >:(

Oi! you've pinched my kite bag!....well nearly ( Only kidding   ;))

Nice job! they are actually pretty easy to make - even I managed it and I can't sew!

Norm,  If you want one I'd be happy to make you one.  I made mine an eight kite bag which is really a copy of my Prism bag which is ten kite.  Since the picture I have added 7" high pockets at one end for line sets not sure if I'm gonna do the other end but can do .  Mine is primarily black with purple inside let me know what colors...

Just jump in you will learn quickly

They are pretty straightforward to make but the thing I would add is plan what you want to do first and think ahead. In the case of my bag when I first put in the strip that forms the kite pockets I could only sew it along the long side and bottom as I needed to get behind the pocket to sew in one of the carry strap fastenings and one of the three closing straps - sewing up the last side and sewing the actual pockets for the kites was the very last job. It's easy to get carried away with the sewing machine and then have to unpick stitches afterwards!! :-[

I guess that is why the seam ripper is my best friend on all my sewing projects.  :D
