A couple years ago, I adapted an old motorcycle bar bag pattern for use as a purse. Because it looked like the kind of thing I imagine Jimmy Olsen carries around, I called it The Daily Planet Purse. True to its namesake, it fit a camera and a small notebook perfectly.
Anyway, this version was [...]
This I-Pad holster took up much of my time yesterday so I’m behind on the cuffs, but plan to work on the mountain avens of the NWT tomorrow.
Anywhooooooo this is a custom order for a fellow artist. Based on the same design as my chalk bag, only done to the dimensions of an I-Pad.
Name change to the Ocean Playground Purse – absolutely everything that could have gone wrong with this bag did go wrong. It is the world’s most disappointing daughter. I never want to see it again, but I’ll probably have to stare at it every day for the rest of my life because I’ll never be [...]

An old Tandy sissybar bag design – meant for motorcycles, retrofitted for bodies, intended for camera nerds. I call it the Daily Planet Purse.
This is my first attempt and there are already some things I’ll do differently on my [...]
