Craftsman Made

Bag For A Musician

Recommended Posts

Made this recently mainly out of solid undyed cowhide and a slightly thinner chestnut bridle leather. Hand stitched 6 to inch using 4 cord 18 linen thread. The idea for the design on the front came from Monica J's wonderfully designed and made Violin Bag.

That's an awesome bag! I love how you closed it, and also the buckles on the gussets. Super cool. I can't believe you cut out the outline and the treble clef. That's ridiculous. Just tell me this, are you ever going to do it again? ;)

I've looked at this thread about 3-4 times now, and the colors are just flippin awesome!

I also like how the strap stitching is parallel to the closure / lid / flap whatever its called (LOL) and the music clef...It all lines up very nicely...The buckles & straps hugging the lower radius of the shell is perfect too. This bag is all about detail plus its a load of stitching...My hats off to you sir...Great job!

Hi Monica. Thanks for the great comments. No I am not going to be making another bag like this the reason being it is a one off made for a musician over in your part of the world. It took a lot of time working it all out as I had never tried doing this before.

Hi Bruce. Again thanks for all your great comments. I had a basic idea of what I was going to do when I first started and the bag sort of evolved as it went along. The straps and buckles that ended up on the front flap were either the 4th or 5th variation I had tried and to me it just looked right in keeping with the rest of it.

Peter.
