Mail Sack Drumstick Bag [Happy Valentine's Day Mr. MRL]

_DSC1089
You may remember when I made this mail sack pillow for our living room.  My husband loved the industrial simplicity of the pillow.  So much so that when he asked me to make him a bag to keep his drumsticks in when he goes to gigs with his band he asked if I had anything like the mail sack to make his drumstick bag.

Luckily...I did...

He wanted something industrial, worn, sturdy, and rugged looking that he could hang while he plays.  
I think this nailed it.   By the way my Juki (a.k.a. Tough Lady) really pulled through on this one...I broke one needle going through the multiple layers of canvas and invisible zipper and to be fair it was just a Universal as I didn't have anything more appropriate on hand...but we prevailed in the end!

Measurements are roughly 20"x3.5".

Linking up!

Way cool!!! You know, there is going to be another run on mail bags! I wonder if our poor postal workers are ready for the onslaught!!!

Love the industrialness of the drumstick holder - just needs a few beer stains on it now!
