My custom-colored "black" Steel Dyneema Packing Cube Shoulder Bag
The Packing Cube Shoulder Bag has got to be one of my favorites from Tom Bihn. They make great purses, packing cubes, stuff sacks, etc.
I also realize that part of what makes them unique is their signature checkerboard/tablecloth lines from the white nylon.
That said, I really love black bags. Well, since these bags are so affordable, I went ahead and conducted an experiment, using a black Sharpie laundry maker to color just the white threading on my shoulder bag. Check it out!

The whole thing took a couple of hours while I watched TV. I think it came out fantastic! Once the ink dried, it was permanent, and doesn't bleed or stain. And now I'm thinking I might use this as a regular everyday purse!
Now I'm thinking I might want to try a light pink on my red bag, and maybe a light blue on my purple!
