djembe drum bag
Well here it is, a djembe drum bag with shoulder straps & a drawstring! No forthcoming tutorial (unless you bribe me) because it was a custom job that mainly involved wrapping up the above drum in fabric until I found a fit that worked and then pinning and re-pinning the shoulder straps on until I felt comfortable that they would fit a broader set of shoulders than my own. Made with sturdy cotton canvas and given with a lifetime warranty :) Seeing as I've never made a drum bag before I didn't even have an image in mind or ideas for useful features, but was told that shoulder straps were a must. So part of the lifetime warranty includes an open call for design suggestions and edits to make it more user-friendly and pleasing to the drummer!
