Has anyone ever tried making their own chalkbag? I couldent make a chalkbag if my life depended on it, but a friend made me a pretty cool one.

Dang Greg, those look great. I like the simplistic look. Any chance you sell them or give directions on how to make?

My chalk bag is an old pant leg sewed at the bottom and a shoe lace as a draw string.
Ive been using it for 5 years and have made a couple others, haven't had any problems with leaking chalk. Best part of it is I didn't have to buy anything new or fancy to make it happen. FREE!

I'm going to throw together a video in the next couple weeks here that can walk you through the build with pattern dimensions. I'll post up on here when I get around to it.

You really don't need to use a ziplock or anything of the sort unless you're using a porous, uncoated fabric. Any decent nylon 70d-1680d would be just fine.
