“I made this bicycle bag in my house. It is a copy of a store version and I made it personally for my amusement. You make a pattern and it took a couple of weeks. For one bag, it took a long time. It was expensive to buy in the store, but I had the leather and the fabric, so it was just the time. In the end, it cost almost nothing.”
