Tool & Accessory Bag $24

The T&A Bag – (for tools and accessories, duh.)

inner tube accessory bag

Fill it with tools, money, a small coin purse, make-up, cell phone, business card wallet, iPod – you choose.

I just re-designed this bag . Now it has a D-ring in the side seam.

It’s even better now for attaching keys or to clip to a backpack or your bike. It also holds the coin purse and wallet easily.

  • Zipper closure with chain link pull
  • 7 inches wide at the top
  • 4″ tall with a 1″ bottom
  • Contrasting stitching

inner tube Accessory Bag

 

I sew this bag from 3 strips of inner tubes. Each is unique because I use a variety of brands of recycled inner tubes.
I use old chain links as zipper pulls. I do use new zippers and thread for durability and practicality but the tubes and pulls are from bike shops and biking pals.

The D-rings are usually re-cycled from belts I find at the thrift store although I do buy some new.

Spring Time Is New Purse Time!

I just created this fringed inner tube purse last Sunday. I love how it turned out!

I call it the Fringe Benefits Purse.

(The purse is not this blue. I didn’t white balance.)

I love the fringe. I’d been wanting to play around with it for some time and it works great for this bag. ┬áMade of recycled ┬átubes, this purse is super comfortable and made to be worn across your body, leaving you hands free to do whatever it is you do when you need to have all your stuff on you.

It lays flat against your hip, making it easy to walk with and it doesn’t make you look fat.

It’s unlined and here are the deets, as the young kids like to say. I think. I have no idea since I don’t have kids. Word.

Details:

9 inch top opening with a 9 inch black metal zipper
14″ width at widest point, 12″ width at bottom
2 D-rings
51 inch strap

I reinforced the strap internally with recycled (oh yes, I hoard) plastic strapping for strength and now it won’t stretch which will keep your wallet, phone, lip gloss, keys, iPod, cosmetics, comb, brush, patch kit, bounce free!

This was sold on my Etsy store. Check it out! Heart me if you like it!

Update: This purse now lives in Florence, Italy!!!! I envy this purse. I sold it 2/2011 to a wonderful Italian photographer. I’m hoping she’ll send me photos of it.
