kmond kmond /

I am planning a long trip on my ped,

Anybody have good ideas on how to make homemade

saddle bags out of canvas?..

Re: SADDLE BAGS

Buy some of those canvas grocery bags and use them maybe? I use bicycle panniers I found at a yard sale.

army navy stores have good strong bags that work well.

Go to a hardware store or walmart and get a grommet kit, so you can put those nice brass grommets through the canvas so it won't rip and you can just use big zipties to hold the bags on from there.

Re: SADDLE BAGS

use plastic bins and wrap some fabric around them. then sew it all together.

Re: SADDLE BAGS

Look at lady's purses in any dept discount store check the markdowns. Look for the large fake leather or canvas ones, then do the grommet hole thing and then figure out how to strap them in or make some brackets to hold them in.

I get ideas all the time for stuff like this just by going to stores and looking for ideas.

Also harbor freight tools may have a tool bag that may work...

I saw a messenger bag a Traget once that looked like it would make a good saddle bag!

Just look around and see what you can find..

I googled and found this....
