I was wondering if anyone had ever made a field hockey bag before. They're so pricey, and I'm in desperate need of one. If not, I'm just going to get out my stick and gear and start away, but it'd be nice to have some other input on this.

Anyone?

A field hockey bag is quite different from other bags I've seen anyplace... and quite over priced, going for about $50.



Its basically a thin, elongated oval with a few very large pockets on the side and a long sturdy strap. At the moment, I'm using a very large shoulder-sling bag made from a sweatshirt, and thats holding up quite well. I'd much rather have something more professional, though. Any hints you could give would be lovely to have!

You could do this a coulple of different ways.  You could use the Jordy concept for the bottom of the bag.  Just cut you fabric pieces to the shape and size you need then use the Jordy method to finish the bottom.  The only problem you may have with this is the seams at the bottom.  They will be weaker and more likely to come apart. 
You could also use the gusset concept.  Cut two side pieces in the shape you need then have a gusset that goes all the way around.  This may be the stronger version.  You will not have a seam across the very bottom.  It may be a little more difficult though.  Just make sure your measurements correct.  You could also use a cheap fabric to practice on.  Then once it is right you can use it for the lining of the bag. (no waste)

Well, I'm sure I didn't pay anything close to 50 for my field hockey bag but... make sure you add a little pocket on the side handy for MOUTHGUARDS!     It also depends how big you want to make your bag how many sticks you put in it... I always had at least 2 with me.

Thats what they've been turning up around here for. they advertise $20 on the website and then hit you with $50 at the stores. Thus why I'm going to make it myself... plus I've a bit of an idea that I think will be awesome to make.

And of course I'll have a mouthguard pocket.. that goes without saying. Haha. I'm always misplacing mine(I'm on my third this season!) so it'll be brightly colored so I remember to put the guard back in it. I'm quite excited about this... I'll be sure to tell you all how it goes!
