Caltrain Bike Cozy

San Francisco --> San Mateo

When taking your bike on to the CalTrain, you always wanna make sure you aren’t blocking someone else’s bike that might be getting off before yours. Most bikes show their destinations by using these ugly little yellow tags that would show what stations they would board or depart on. After talking about it for a while, I finally decided to make my own bike cozy that proudly displayed my frequent start/stop destinations, San Francisco and San Mateo.

If I were to make another one, I’d make the letters much smaller so I could place the directions on both sides of the cozy. This version is only viewable from one side. Also, I’d avoid using denim or use a shorter gate on my zigzag stitch. As you can see in this photo, the denim edges tend to stick out. Don’t know if this will continue or eventually stop.
