Czech, I'm sure that works a treat!
Improving every time.
Makes me think whether I should try making one from the pile cabbage palm leaves atop the bookshelf...

Iron goober That's a good question.  but since it is a heroic balearic foner, he will probably be able to do it.  Incidentally, the motif comes from a fortress in Palma. Roll Eyes

Beautiful work.

But, the real question is, how far can the man depicted on the bag sling while carrying another man? Wink


I tried that yesterday. I lifted a friend on my shoulders and used a sling to shoot a tennisball. I only got a distance of 30 meters

Hahaha!  Excellent! Scientific inquiry at it's best! 
@Jaegoor I was wondering how you came up with the motif on your bag. Did you do it yourself? It is very well made. I wouldn't even use such a beautiful bag for fear of scratching it.

This is just one bag from the shed, and I still didn't find the one I was looking for.

There's officially something wrong with me.

That's not a problem.   It's a lifestyle-level hobby and (bonus points!) it's one that doesn't put you in the poorhouse.

the hanging green play ball to the right of the shed is the target at 20 meters.  There's a rice-filled tennis ball (ammo) behind the kid's bike.  I'm making more of those right now.

The rest of them are in a box in the shed, in various coat pockets, desk drawers, suitcases, car seats, coat trees, and couch cushions, and behind my younger son's dresser.

My wife's gonna kill me if I pull them all out at the same time.

I want to braid and weave more, but I have kittens now and they just won't stand for that.  Hmmm... maybe somethin nice in paracord.
