Unique messenger style bag

by Gkam84   March 31, 2012  

Hi folks, This might not be to everyone's taste, but hoping someone might like it.

My mum has been making unique "upcycled" bags and hand bags for a long time, but has recently opened a shop selling her wares. I've been asking her to do up some messenger bags aimed at commuters to test the market for it.

So here is one, Made mainly from tweed fabric, give me a shout if you like it. Looking for £55 posted.

If you have an idea for another bag, then get in touch on facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Notions-of-Brechin/308598319159233

If your not of the facebook generation, i can provide you an email address Wink

I don't have many commuter-themed ideas, but here goes:

How about a cycling-themed race map or mountain profile? Print from PC onto thermal inkjet printing paper, iron onto fabric then make up the bag. Guess this may be marketed more as a musette. Do a yellow one, with a Tour de France-themed lining done in the same way, or a pink one (manly pink, a la Rapha!) with a Giro equivalent.

A collage of cycling accident newspaper cuttings scanned in and used the same way, (in my head there is a visible 'SMIDSY' text)

Cool little sayings maybe. 'I love the sound of cleats in the morning' as per my sig refers to Sunday mornings. When I hear 10 or 20 of us all clipping in, that's kind of the start of the day. Another one (both of which I like the idea of having printed on my top tube, actually) is 'when the road goes up, the chat goes down' which is so true on the club run.

If I could have, say, 6 bikes, would it stop me drooling over others that I don't have?
