DIY : Alphorn Bag is Completed !
and now my husband wants a bike armour in this recycled denim style. More about that later.
The alphorn bag, ta-da !
I didn’t use jeans to make the handles after all. It looks better with seatbelt handles. The handles are secured with 2 rows of rivets and is long enough to carry snugly over the shoulders. I took in the round top to make it more fitted. Also done with rivets cuz there is no possible way to sew through that many layers of denim !
The other side are some pockets. Three small , one large.
The bottom of the bag is extra thick. They are all from waistbands :
Also added 2 quick release straps to hold the instrument in place and lessen the weight on the zippers :
That denim looks so cool patched together like that, especially love those waistbands. No wonder your husband wants his own – congratulations!
Thank you for your kind words ! The waistband design is my favourite part too !
