Wald 139 basket bag, frame bag and gore-tex dungarees

Post by Martin B » Sun Apr 25, 2021 7:48 pm

I was asked by a work colleague to make him a basket bag for his Wald 139 basket.
It wasn't as difficult as first thought but its the first big project that I've had to design from scratch for someone who was paying for it. Queue a lot of research and measuring and I had the following pieces cut ready for thread injection.

the finished product:

i used 1000d cordura for the base which had 4mm closed cell foam behind it to give items in the bag some protection. The 40mm wide securing strap also doubles as a shoulder strap and there is two extender straps for the lid closure in case the bag is filled to the gunnels and items still need to be held down in place.

the happy customer:

He also asked me to make up a frame bag for his cousin;
final-ish design concept on cutting template:

main parts cut and webbing/velcro attached

liner attached to outer and ready to be unfurled:

about to finish the rolltop closure:

the final product with velcro straps and liner dividers/tensioners to stop the sides bulging out when packed:

it was originally designed to have 3 straps to hold the roll closure shut however i miscalculated the amount of webbing needed and only had enough for 2. as it is with the plastic stiffener that i added to the opening and also the 3 velcro strips to hold the roll top closed 2 straps was more than adequate.

Also a few months ago i had a quest on to find a decent pair of kids waterproof dungarees/salopettes. I either couldn't get what i wanted in the correct size and they cost a fortune or they were cheap as chips but you could shoot peas through them. by chance and on speaking with my mother in law, she had a sewing pattern for a pair of kids dungarees. a quick look at www.profabrics.co.uk and i had bought gore-tex with a super heavy duty face fabric for about £12 a linear metre.

the rough end cost is probably about £15 incl elastic and buckles..... bargain. I've got a few adjustments to make for the next pair as the velcro ankle straps are sighted a bit high and the shoulder straps could do with coming in a centimetre or two at the back to help hold them on my daughters shoulders better.

Unfortunately for me and in order to keep me out of trouble, my beloved daughter also spied that the dungaree sewing pattern was a 4 design set and it had a pinafore pattern in it.

Almost getting round to making some MYOG kit for myself, but first 2 stemcells, a skirt, a wax cotton satchel project and then my stuff :roll:

The clips work great for holding pieces. Other good tips i found were using double sided sticky tape and also temporarily stapling parts together to keep them well aligned for stitching.

I discovered it recently for MYOG, Toolstation low tack masking tape is cheap lots, (left over after big Dec proj. at home..) https://www.toolstation.com/painting-de ... and=ProDec.
(You don't need expensive Decorator brands like Frogtape or KleenEdge.)
If you're sewing light weight/slippery or 'unstable' textiles like mesh netting it 2 pieces of tape either dose of seam stabilise it.
this is how I put pleats in a mesh pocket on the seat pack..

The end result...
a seat pack expandable mesh pocket for drying things...

That seat pack looks great. I looked at doing a MYOG seat pack but deemed the amount of work to go in to making a prototype and a final version from scratch and no reference as to sizing to much and ended up buying an ACEPAC holster style one from the BearBones Shop.
That said if i ever need to replace it i'll have a reference point on where to start but that could be a decade from now.

Cheers, :-bd it worked out well. If I made another, it have a pvc base, then ditch the rear guard. :grin:
Applying Hot seam- seal tape was a chore. :roll:
