Recently I purchased a bike that would allow me to have bags along the back. I wanted something that I commute with and be able to go to the store, farmers market, park etc. What is exciting about being a sewer is that I was able to custom fit it for my needs. I found plastic coated cotton material at Z Fabrics to make it. I measured my boyfriend’s bike bags and created a pattern from it.
I changed it a bit and turned it into a single bag. I created flaps that protect it more and added a strap from another bag to be able to carry it outside of the bike.
The inside is a canvas duck with pockets that house my bike lights and locks.
I have used it many times and I love it!
