My own guitar bag! Oh yeah, happy 2008.

That’s right, I made my own fender guitar bag. Uzi has not seen it and hopefully, he’ll be delighted when he finally does, wherever he is in Manila.

Darn, I miss him.

Well, I made a tutorial for those crafting-inclined souls out there. HAPPY SEWING!  PLEASE DO NOT SELL ANY GUITAR BAG THAT YOU END UP MAKING. THANKS.

*UPDATE (Suggested by Renee heehee)

MATERIALS NEEDED: half a meter of thick fabric for the body (i used thick pink canvas for mine); fabric for the lining; fabric in contrasting color for the scratchplate; bias tape; silver-y fabric; buttons; silver thread; grosgrain for the strap; adjuster for the strap.

1. Print a guitar image onto an A4 paper. Trace your image; 2 for the body, 2 for lining, 2 for your scratchplate.

  6. Hey I think great minds think alike, I made one a year ago my son has 8 electric guitars and he has 2 fenders, I was moving them around his room one day and thought it would be good If I could make him some cases to put them in, then thinking about it I thought that a snazy guitar bag would look great.
    but looks just as nice in the pink :0)

  7. Hey,

    If you use the right materials like a strong canvas or something simlar like thick nylon then they should last you a while and you can make them quite Jazzy looking too, just give it a go what you got to lose oh and a good strong Zip for it too, most things can be made. :0) good luck with your project

  8. This is wonderful. I have a buddy who’s obsessed with the Beatles, and I think I might make her one of their guitars as a bag. :D thanks for sharing.
