My mom has a super heavy-duty "SailRite" #sewing machine. It weighs like 30kg, has a "walking foot" and is geared to sew through like a dozen layers of super-heavy fabric. While visiting, we found some old scrap canvas once intended for sail covers and upholstery so I decided to make myself a tool carrier styled after a sail rigger's bag that I had seen. I liked the way the design was based on having lots of pockets around the outside (it has 24). For the handle, I whittled down a little piece of white cedar wood (found in the yard). Thanks to mom's coaching and help on a couple of tricky stitches, I think it turned out pretty nice.

@praxeology Nice work. And a respectful homage to the sewing machine to make the colours match to it. :)
