A Stylin' Bag

I like to add a little style to my ride, whether it's wearing a skirt over my tights or with a wicker front basket decorated with flowers. My newest addition is a sturdy double nylon carrying bag with leather handles that I found at the Salvation Army. I sewed in button holes and used two skinny belts (also recycled) to hold the bag to the handlebars. I look out for discounted or repurposed plastic flowers and, when necessary, replace the flower decoration. The tote can also be hooked to the back rack. Total cost = $5.00

Sew button holes to hold in the leather straps.

This tote came with a loop to attach
 a flower, but you could add your
 own button hole to serve the same purpose.

  1. Totally love the repurposed bag, Annie! Your description and excellent picture make it easy to adapt your idea. Thank you. These days I do more with bags than I do with bikes, but you never know...
