Description

Yep, I’m still on my bag making period. This time it’s bike panniers.

It took about two months preparation – brainstorming, thinking of dimensions, pattern drawing, material hunting, etc, and only two days of sewing. I nearly killed my singer, as it’s not meant for sewing several layers of material this heavy.
I had some failures on the go, but the panniers are usable, and I hope sturdy enough for my upcoming three weeks ride.

Material Notes

Cordura, lighter poly for pockets and closure, webbing, reflective tape, Nylon thread, zippers, buckles, plastic sheets for back, hooks, screws, elatics.

Difficulty

Intermediate

    I agree! I am so inspired. After an hour of internet searching on sewing panniers, yours are the best I’ve seen! Great job!
