Bicycle tool roll

At pretty much the last minute I decided I’d rather not sew a pocket into the new saddlebag to hold my tools, but that I’d be better off making up a toolroll out of some of the spare canvas I have lying around after making the prototype#0 handlebar bag.

I had two flats on the Three Capes R300, and it was very useful to be able to lay out the tool roll and just pluck tire irons and the like from an easy to spot chunk of canvas. I don’t have a latch to hold it closed yet (I need to hand-sew a latch, which takes more time than I had on friday) so I just use a velcro strap as a placeholder) but it works nevertheless.
