Porteur Bag - Making Progress

I added the lid to the practice porteur bag, added cardboard to the inside to give the bag some rigidity and checked out the fit on the Elephant NFE.

Yes, it's ugly. That's why we practice.

I'm going to continue the lip around the back on my next one so I won't have the corners sticking out like that.

Here we are on the porteur rack.

Overall, the fit is good.

Plenty of clearance for shifting.

I made all kinds of notes on all the mistakes I made and difficulties I had. The seam ripper and I have been spending a lot of time together and I think Kathy is getting suspicious. Hopefully, my next bag won't need as much error correcting.

Taking advantage of today's rain to test the waterproofness of my frame bag. It's stuffed with towels. If all goes well, dry towels.
