Here are instructions to make a simple bag to carry your essentials while playing a game of disc golf; a few discs and a water bottle (or if you're like me a nice big beer!).

Step 1: Stuff You'll Need

Picture of Stuff You'll Need
- Heavy duty fabric, I used denim.
- Thread appropriate for your fabric, I used a #80 polyester.
- Industrial Sewing Machine
- *Scrap of leather
- *Laser Cutter

* If you want a name patch.

Step 2: Cutting Your Pattern

I made my strap 2" with, so cut 4 1/2" wide strip the desired length of your shoulder strap plus 36" (that will be the boarder of your bag)

Cut another piece 36" x 12", this will be the main compartment of you bag, I chose to use a different color of fabric, but it's obviously up to you. You can use one of your discs to trace an appropriate french curve at one of the 12" side's corners for the bag's closing flap. Cutting all of this to these dimensions gives you a fair amount of wiggle room as far a seam allowance, I tried to keep mine at a 1/4".

Cut one more piece 9" x 6", this is your H2O / PBR holster.

Step 3: Making Your Shoulder Strap

With the good side of the fabric folded on itself, sew the length of you're soon to be strap.

Turn right-side out. Warning, this may take some time and cause mild arthritis, be patient.

Iron flat with seam centered.

Sew each length with 1/4" from edge.

Fold ends over and iron flat, then sew 'em.

Step 4: Prepping the Bottle Holder and Bag Farbric

Fold over 1/4" of the 6" edge of the fabric, iron flat and sew. This will be the top of your bottle holder.

Fold in half, good side in, with 9" edges touching. Sew bottom of bottle holder closed with a 1/4" seam allowance. Then turn right-side out.

Iron and Sew the 12" edge (without the curve) of your 12" x 36" fabric.

Awesome! It looks like it would make a great picnic bag too (holding plates and what not)!
