Dog bed rod bag

Post by Kev D » Mon Nov 18, 2019 8:47 pm

Compared with some of the craftsmanship displayed in this section my effort pales but I'm quite proud of it..
I graze a handful of sheep on a friend's land. No money changes hands but I have a couple of self-imposed unofficial duties . One is dealing with rubbish from the stables that builds-up every few weeks; either dropping it off at the tip or having a bonfire as applicable.
Amid the last batch of junk was a huge dog bed . It was in a sorry state having once been the property of the farm mastiff in his puppy-stage, but I managed to salvage just enough for my needs. Those needs being a traditional-looking bag in keeping with the vintage style of my charity-shop "Capella".
It is not perfect, but luckily most of the "bloke -sewing" is tucked away on the inside .

Very nice: up-cycling I think and well matched too.

All rod bags should look like this. Well done Kev.

Very nice indeed brilliant re-cycling. It would be perfect for trips when you walk up or down a river to fish, you could call it your Rover.
