Walk into a maker space and begin asking questions and one of the things you will inevitably be introduced to is the area of the space where people can learn to sew together all kinds of things from clothing to bags and more. Which leads to my interest in having and using a sewing machine.

One of My Obsessions

Over a period of many years, I’ve collected a rather large number of backpacks and bags. The bulk are actually backpacks, many are daypacks, others are for computers, still others are for hiking and camping. I love bags.

In recent years, I’ve moved beyond simply wanting to buy bags to wanting to build my own for the specific needs (and wants) that exist. One such bag is the roll top backpack, though I’m equally interested in building more messenger bags that can fulfill other objectives.
