A Nice Note of Appreciation

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

Dear Dr. Tad,

Thank you so much for the bag that you specially made, I asked from you yesterday and you willingly gave it to me. I’m using it right now and I am so happy because I really like it and have been wanting for this ever since.

Thank you again for being so kind and generous to all of us here in the E.D. Your are one of a kind.

May the good Lord continue to bless you and your family always.

From,

Zippered Bags

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

Most of my bags are simple with non-closing, oblong openings. I bought some zippers and messed around making bags that would accommodate them. As us usually the case with such endeavors, the first bag was OK and each subsequent was better.

Diagonal Bags

I am most proud of a couple of these I made. Part of the reason is they turned out really nice. In addition, it was really a pain to make them. Getting the diagonal straps to line up evenly was difficult. Then I had to get the tube that forms the sides be the right size for the bottom. Pat, one of our dayshift nurses, got the best one and every time I see her carrying it, I am quite pleased and tell her she has the best bag I ever made.

Large and Small

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

This week, I thought I would show the largest and smallest bags I ever made. The size of the large one was determined by the mesh materiel with a draw string I salvaged from another bag. It ended up so huge, I didn’t know what the heck to do with it. Then one of our registration clerks said she would like a large bag for her kids beach stuff. Viola. An appreciative home for it.

The small bag was made to hold just what we need to take to the gym: car keys, wallet, phones, gym passes, gloves.
