Padding My Bottom at FabMo

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

I decided to use some padding I got at FabMo to see if I could thicken up the bottom of a bag. Here is the padding going between the two layers I usually use for the bag bottom:

And here is a bag I made with the padded bottom and a FabMo zipper.

Blue Bag Made with Fabmo Zippers

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

Yesterday, I went to my first Fabmo event. It was fun to meet the great volunteers and I came home with a handful of big, plastic zippers. Here is a bag I came up with, using the zipper only as a decoration. It was Shari’s great idea to use the yellow as a contrasting color.


Here is the front. The zipper starts by the horizontal yellow tab and run around the back of the bag.


Here is the back.

Another Backpack

One of the hardest things I have done as a bag sewer is to convert a Goodwill backpack into a Tad’s Bags backpack. Here is my latest effort. The last time I did this, I swore I would never do it again. I feel that way again now. I like the way it turned out but it was really a pain. I sure hope Carlo enjoys it.
