Three Black Bags

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

Black straps are prized as only a few come through the department. Three of our nurses set a goal to get black bags and started saving every black strap they could get their hands on. Here are the bags I made for them.

Fire Fighter’s Bag

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

Got a request from Eric, the guy who gave me the fire hoses, for a bag for a neighbor whose son is a fire fighter. He specifically asked that the big, brass coupler be attached to the bag. Here is what I came up with. This is a man bag.

A New Strap Recycle Bin

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

The bin I used to hold rolled-up straps to return them to the paramedics to use disappeared recently. I decided to make it more clear that the bin I provided was to be used for that specific purpose. I bought a recycle can at Goodwill and decorated it with straps to make it clear that it was not a trash can.

Bumble Bee Bag

For years, our county Emergency Medical Services (EMS) has used the same yellow-green trauma straps. Recently, patients have been coming in with orange, black and lemon yellow straps. What a great inspiration for any bag maker!

Here is a bumble bee bag I made out of some of the new straps.
