    ==Pod Pouch== 2/5/14
    I realize it's been over a year and I haven't been active on this post. But I've been sewing here and there. Here's a little pouch, dual colored teal/bronze with a safety orange tab (I like the color contrasts) packed with coffee pods that I drink at work.

    ==Little Organizer== 2/9/14
    There are 3 things that I always carry in my pack: Memory card reader, key fob and USB stick. One day I got tired of them floating around in my pack, I made a little holder/organizer for them. They fit quite cozily and I dig the use of magnets as a closure.
    Have a great Sunday.

    LOVE the HDD pouch does it have molle on the back to be added to packs.... would work wonderful with packs that have molle inside them. i would buy interseted in buying a couple of those if/when you consider selling some. find it pretty cool that you have the talent to make your edc items instead of buying something that wont fit the bill as well.

    Keep up the Great work

    ==Watch Strap!== 2/11/14
    In 2013 I got sucked into the world of watches. I purchased a vintage Seiko on eBay from a Middle Eastern seller. The Seiko was refurbished and came with a strap not to my liking. After looking at a few NATO straps, I took a shot and came up with this. The "clasp" is good ol' velcro and can be a little precarious. But after months of wearing it, the velcro hasn't failed yet. I have an idea to make the next strap a 2 step "clasp" to prevent accidental release.

    Looks good, the only problem I have with Velcro is that it tends to come undone when wet, and that's a big problem for me.

    Hmm that's funny, I have no problems with my surfboard leash which is fastened by velcro. Had it tugged and yanked but held on just fine while catching waves.

    That's a good point, I forgot about that, and I too have never had a problem with my leash. But every watch that I've had with a Velcro band, I've either lost, or almost lost in the water. Maybe it has something to do with the number of "cycles"?

    Where do you get the material? I've been thinking of a prototype wallet, but will have to sew by hand.
