Orange and Blue Bags This Week

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

I spent some spare time the last couple of weeks making these bags. My wife asked me why I made seven and I told her it was because that is how many bottoms could be cut out of the material. Doing seven at a time makes me more efficient but at times I do feel like I am in a sweat shop. I crammed them in my locker at work and they are gone already!

Banner Bag

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

When shopping at RAFT, I am always on the prowl for something that would make a cool bag. When we saw two huge banners with lots of black and orange, I bought them. I have had them rolled up under the bed for months until, on Friday night, I woke up at 2:00 and was unable to go back to sleep. It was tricky to sew the plasticized material but I was pleased with the result. The bag folds flat but unfolds to form a rectangular bottom that stands up well. Here are some pictures.

This is what the banner looked like. I took the upper left part for my bag.

Here is the bag with the bottom folded flat. The trauma straps cover the word “Microsemi” that was on the banner.

Another Diaper Bag

We are expecting our first grandchild this fall. Here is a picture of our son, Philip and his prego wife, Elizabeth, with the diaper bag I made for “Genghis,” the best name they have been able to come up with so far.

Dr. Jasmine’s New Tad Bag

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

I have made several bags with zippers but it is a pain so I usually tell people “no” when I am asked for a bag with a zipper. When Jasmine asked me, I said “no” then came home and made one for her. Here she is, smiling appreciatively.

Small Black Bags with Yellow Stripes

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

Someone at work asked for a small bag with narrow stripes. When I sat down to make her one, I got the crazy idea to just make a batch. I worked on them all week and came out with nine. None is like another. Two are small with a single handle. Here there are, individually and as a group.

Diaper Bag for Hannah

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

When my wife mentioned that we needed to go to Toys R Us to buy a baby shower gift for our niece, Hannah, I offered to make her a bag instead. I was able to come up with something that I am sure no other new mother in Amarillo, Texas will have.

Manu’s Man Bag

One of our registration clerks asked me to make a bag he could carry on his back and showed me the one he was using as an example. I was able to come up with something similar to what he had but with that Tad Bag difference.
