This week though I found one that was torn at the sides. I was about to throw it away but then I thought no...
It can be put to good use somehow!
So now I bring you the shoppingbagsaddlecover. For your convenience.
The bags are mostly very colourful so not only will this cover keep your saddle dry; it will look good doing it.
This one I just made says "hello" in Dutch. It will be the first thing to greet me when I cycle to work in the morning. I like that.
Step 1: Making a pattern
So what do we need?
- An old big-shopper (it has been cut open)
- Some paper to make the pattern and tape
- Elastic or non-elastic cord
Fold the paper and put it on the saddle. The fold should be in the middle. Draw a rough outline. Too big is better than too small!
Fold open the pattern and put it on the bag. Choose a section you like. Draw the pattern on the bag and cut it. As you can see I added some extra space for the seam.
