NO! You can't do that! You are giving me a whole slew of new and interesting ideas!
And remember, I've been sewing for over 40 years and am STILL learning new things every day! That's the joy of sharing ideas and techniques with all the different folk here and elsewhere: you keep learning new stuff about techniques and fabrics, and getting new ideas about what to make, and passing on stuff you have learned elsewhere... And you meet whole new set of friends, too!
Outdoors kit, and especially light weight stuff, is one area I really need to expand my knowledge and skills base, so I can help the lad to make his own kit.
