For Boy #1

Tonight is the night! December 5th we always celebrate St. Nicolas’ birthday, and we exchange gifts with each other. And like every year, I’ve made at least one gift per person myself.


I used this fabric because Boy#1 is a sea scout. He loves to sail, and he also loves activities like hiking with a compass.

Recently he started a new hobby; photography. And within just a little bit of time, he collected some equipment to do this like a pro. One of the items is a tripod, and he did get a bag for it. But as usually is the case, it was made of cheap, inferior material, and was actually good for nothing. So this is what I came up with:

The bag has straps, made out of one piece of fabric which was foulded, and the double stitched with twill tape.


The strap was closed to a ring, and then stitched onto the bag making 2 shoulder straps.

As you can see the zipper is on one side, starting from the center of the top.


Hope he likes it!

Groetjes, Dorien

I am sure this will be appreciated Dorien - it looks very sturdily made and will take a lot of wear.
