I have so many wonderful memories from music festivals. My first-ever concert when I was 13 was Summerfest in Milwaukee; since then I've gone to at least two festivals every summer, including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, and many more.
I had this shirt from Bonnaroo 2008 - I really like it, but it's one of those tiny stretchy girly shirts that fits for like 5 minutes when you're the skinniest you'll ever be. Which I no longer am. But, this Bonnaroo was the first festival I ever went to with my husband, so I knew it had to be re-purposed.
I've been meaning to make a festival bag for awhile - something super lightweight and comfy that could travel with me to all the music festivals and hold the essentials. I have a t-shirt, I need a bag...t-shirt bag!
The finished product!
To test it, I filled it a few festival essentials: my raincoat, sunscreen, and a granola bar. Getting an action shot was a little tricky, sorry for the poor quality:
I also liked the idea of trying to incorporate a barcode, so I created this little tag with a QR code that takes you to a web site with festival safety tips. I'm also going to make some festival-specific ones - one with a map of the campground, for example, or the show lineup:
Thanks for looking!
