I know I have been lax in the craft department. I just don't have the space right now to do much and I've been obsessed with playing music. See my music blog here.
I just finished making a music stand out of an old suitcase and my next project is to make a gig bag for my ubass. It is built on the body of a 3/4 size guitar so the bag will be guitar sized.
I didn't have any padding so I carded eight batts of fleece. I imagine that they will felt down over time, but if I put enough in there, it should be fine - if fluffy for a while. I'll be working on this at a friend's house tomorrow so I'll take some pictures as I go. For now, here's a picture of the instrument in need.
