Tina, a nurse I work with on night shift, told me she met Marianne at Burn Camp, where burned kids go for a week to hang out with each other and do campy things. As it turned out, Marianne’s parents live right around the corner from us and she went all the way through school with our son, Philip. She grew up, became a nurse and works in our burn unit. Tina told her about my blog and I soon received a request for a bag. Now, when we run into her mom in Nob Hill, we can ask her how Marianne likes her bag.

Black and Maroon

Some ambulance came in from somewhere with maroon straps made of the same materiel as seat belts. They have been sitting around here for a long time and I finally had a chance to make a bag out of them. My new “man bag.”

I wish my picture would do this bag justice. It is made of seat belt materiel and the forest green contrasts very nicely with the bright yellow. No matter how I took the picture with any of my cameras, I can’t make the green not look black.

More Red and Black

A couple of weeks ago, I shared bags made, for the first time, with red straps. Since then, I came across short straps of red. One was seat belt materiel, the other just regular straps. I think I am going to adopt the seat belt one for my personal use.

Yellow and Green, Again

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

A couple of week ago, I made a bag out of seat belts that was olive green and bright yellow. I came across some more yellow and green and made this bag. It is not seat belt material and the green is a lot brighter. By the time I made the bag, there was not an inch of green left over to fix the buckle on so I used black.
