Here are a few of the finished shop pics of a recent fun handlebar tool bag I did for the 2011 Blackline that also sports the Dark Knight Rises themed rear fender bib.  Hand tooled vintage Batman logo on the flap, hand painted with Citadel acrylics and hand tooled end caps with the original series style Bat logo.  Interior is lined with black sweatshirt fabric (soft & easy to clean).  1″ stainless steel buckles and hidden velcro keep the flap down and sealed. Overall dimensions, 12″ long x 5″ diameter with straps spaced at 5 1/2″ centers specifically for the Blackline but the pattern is adjustable for any width bars, and vertical or horizontal mountings.

One of the projects I was working on this summer during the whaletail tank bib production hold (production resumes with the first batch starting 9/16/2013) was to pattern a few new whaletail tank bib patterns.  I’ve added a handful to the official line-up on the website and here is the first new one gone from pattern to finished version already:

Shop Update:

As some of you might know from and Facebook, Three Mutts was involuntarily shut down last week due to a 7 day power outage caused by the wind storms that hit So. Cal.  I’m pleased to say that we have power and heat back at the house and shop finally and production has resumed on leather goods and burnishers!  With that said, I’m completely booked through the end of the year, mostly Christmas presents that I’m now scrambling to complete and get into Santa’s bag for delivery.

I’ve started quoting and scheduling jobs for the new year and January is filling up fast (current delivery is quoted as January 15th on paid orders).
