Ghost Hunting Bag.

Added Sep 25, 2009

Lelystad, Nether...






I have a friend who is a real-life, professional ghost hunter. She hated the big clunky toolbox to hold all her electronic equipment so asked me to make a bag to safely hold/protect it all, plus be fashionable and easy to carry.

I based the design on a standard messenger bag, but inside created pocket-world in various shapes and sizes for her specialized needs!

Material Notes

Corduroy exterior, fabric interior. I interfaced the heck out of everything and double stitched/top-stitched where I could for additional strength. Everything is fully lined and all seams are hidden.




Garment Type
Business, Classic, Geek, Other
Corduroy, Cotton


This is my own design.

      It is actually in several parts: there is a small piece of fabric folded in half over a d-ring and sewed into the bag itself.

      I then made a long fabric snake, and then stuffed the heck out of it and topstitched in even lines- in essence quilting it. The end pieces are un-stuffed so they can slide easily through the slide adjusters, catching the D-ring in the process.

      The slide adjusters were store bought. Boy I really hope that made sense.
