So, I got a Schwinn cruiser from the thrift store a few weeks ago, and couldn't be more excited! I haven't had a bike in about 15 years, so I was pretty psyched to craft things for my new toy/mode of transportation. I didn't want a basket. They're very cute and pretty, but I had to be different! So, I naturally looked on craftster for inspiration! I was inspired by the bag haroldlovesmaude made for her partner in the bike swap

So, a few thrift store pillowcases later, here we are:


The lining- because I'm a badass. My tires even say that! Ha!


Gotta have sparkle! My beads wouldn't fit on my sewing needle, so I put them on some wire, formed the wire into an  "S", and sewed that on  Tongue. Whatever works.


I put a horizontal strip across the back. I figured that when I ride my bike somewhere, I can take the bag off, and use it as a clutch, and have the strip as a handle on the back.


The damn cat (not mine) getting in on the action. He kept touching me.


Action shot! Not a good pic. Doesn't do much for my bike's cuteness, but you get the idea.


I used techniques I learned from the jordy and lined zippered pouch tutorials to make my on concoction. Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome!

it's quite a bad idea to ride bikes out here.. in the country sidewalks are the stuff of fiction, and getting ran off the road (or over) is the stark reality that is airport way. ladd actually forbids me to do it. grr. so i guess we should find a park/pathway or something somewhere else :-)
