We’ve talked about Pam Noles and her San Diego Comic-Con bags before.
Noles is a mainstay volunteer at San Diego Comic-Con, working in guest relations and keeping Hall H running smoothly. She also has an Etsy store, where she takes San Diego Comic-Con bags and turns them into, well, proper bags.
And right now she is a) clearing stock and b) offering international shipping. So now, no matter where you are, your bag can be a San Diego Comic-Con bag…
Here’s a look at a few on offer.
I love the giant geeky bags from conventions, but once you’re home, you only need so many laundry bags, you know? Over the years I’ve invented and road-tested several different approaches to turning the raw material into something fun yet useful for daily life. But none of my designs quite worked. I was starting to get on my own nerves. Two years ago, while working on a quilted purse, I was watching a movie set in the Reconstruction-era and it hit me – carpet bags! The shape is simple, the side pleating gives the interior a bit of extra room, and going with a trapezoid allows maximum capture of the images.So here we are. This is my modern take on the 19th-century carpet bag, with a geek twist. I hope you like them as much as I enjoy making them! From first cut to final backstitch, each bag takes nine hours to create. Each is reinforced with lightweight canvas or denim, along with heavyweight non-fusible interfacing, making them very sturdy.
