 So I don't know how many other chic cyclists we have lurking here on Craftster, but anyone who is one probably knows about Po Campo and the awesome bike bags they make. I've been lusting over their rack bags for at least a month now but because of there limited availability and large price tag, I decided to make my own. I created the pattern using pictures off the internet and measurements from their site.

The Original


My Take


Semi Action Shots



It's not perfect but I'm happy how it turned out considering I made the pattern and everything Smiley

I love it! I'd never even heard of Po Campo before, but this is pretty much exactly what I need for my rack!

I've never heard of them either, but now I want on too.  Yours looks awesome, fantastic bag doing it yourself!  I love the challenge of trying to reproduce something just from photos, I may have to attempt this too.  Thanks so much for the inspiration!
