The past year I created three custom Oxygen tank totes. It was a challenge to create since I do not have a tank. I relied on dimensions provided to me by my customers.
My customer asked for a horizontal bag. She also selected the fabrics. I added batting for body. The tanks are a challenge because they have a bulky regulator on one end.
I added an opening for the tubing.
An inside zipper and outside patch pockets.
I asked my customer if she wanted a boxed bag. I would have made the top rectangular.
I also added an adjustable strap so that she could carry it across her body.
Below is the first tote I made for the aunt of a local friend. It is constructed very simply using a double-faced quilted cotton. I added an outside zipper pocket.
The recipient was excited to have a bag that looks more like a purse. I ran into my friend a year or so later and she told me that her aunt loves it – and that was saying something as she is a very picky person!
Most recently, I created this basic tote. My customer wanted long handles and I made them wide for comfort. I also used the double-faced cotton but lined the back with duck cloth for strength.
If you have an interest in me creating a bag, please contact me.
