Default Home made drum bag for Ludwig Auditorium

Having picked up this 15" Auditorium in Cambodia - I wanted to get a softcase to protect it.

Finding goods here can be tricky, and I wanted a bit of a challenge so I set about making one.

Another of my interests is Japanese Selvedge denim and there are a number of second hand Japanese stores here with a plentiful supply of old (sometimes vintage) selvedge denim.

So I borrowed a sewing machine (a vintage Brother Pacesetter) from a friend, and had a go at making this - it isn't perfect, but not bad for about $6 of raw materials.

Excellent.
I wouldn't even attempt something like this.
My fingers would probably be sewn together.

It was an Edwin patch! (an established Japanese denim/workwear clothing company) - put together from two pairs of jeans.
