Finally finished the Brompton bag!

Tadaa! The front bag for the Brompton bicycle!
With this striking red strap!

Side strap is also red!
Very fashionable. ; )

No underlining inside, as my husband didn't want it because it will make the bag heavy.
I have attached 5mm thick foam at the bottom to make the bag keep its shape, but also keep it light.
I found it better to use foam for the bottom of the bag since it's lighter, and child safe.
The bottom corner of the bag can become dangerous to children.
No pockets inside as it will be used to carry his camping gear or fishing gear.

This is the shoulder pad to go with the bag.
It has 5mm thick foam inside as well.

An adjuster used on the strap.
Very unique but very useful idea by my husband.
It's so easy to change length of the strap.
You just hold on to the adjuster, and

pull

He is quite happy now after a long tiresome demands.
Thank goodness!

Now this bag is to be used on the Brompton as well, so why not show it in action?

Well, if you insist.

This is the back side of the bag with the Brompton gear.
You attach this bottom part to the Brompton.

Like this.

Well, what do you think?
Quite cute isn't it?

You can carry your water bottle in the side pocket too!

Well, my husband is now ready to go out for a ride with the bag, but you just don't want to go out today...or tomorrow, or any day this week.
It's just toooooo hot!!!!
Have a cool week!

Please Note:
Thank you very much for so many of you requesting this bag!
However, this bag was designed only to be light weight
and I'm not very happy with how it turned out.
I believe this type of bag will need water proofing, and should use durable material.
But to make it water proof and to be durable, I need professional sewing machine.
Since I only use a normal sewing machine, I can't make satisfactory bag for Brompton.
Therefore, I'm very sorry but I have to decline your kind requests...
Thank you all, and hope you find a nice bag for your Brompton!

Hi, thank you very much for your comment!
It's so nice to hear people liking the bag I made for my husband!
However, I would have to say.."sorry!", as I can't make it to sell.
The bag I made for my husband is not perfect, and there are lot of things that I don't like about.
I did try once, to see how I like making it to sell, but I found it wasn't for me.
It is too big, plain, and need lots of hard work as it has to be durable.
Very sorry that I can't help you, but hope you find the bag you love!
