I have Omega that has a non-original bag. It looks boring and I was wondering if there are any Kirby patches that you can sew or iron on? I'm also thinking of getting a full length zipper put on, would I then cut out the inner lining (if it has one)? I hate shakeout bags and it's not original so nothing to lose.

I don't think there are any sew-on or iron-on patches that are addons, all you could do is take one off a damaged bag and attach it somehow on to the replacement bag...

As for adding a long zip, the usual method is to cut out the seam that runs up the back of the bag and then stitch in a long zip, and then cut out the scraper pocket and stitch that zip shut, but personally I'd just extend the scraper pocket cutout ad put a long zip in there, so instead of two zips, you have one at an angle, but it's up to you how you do it... :)

Oh, another one for the patch, print out your own onto an iron-on transfer patch, won't look original but should look okay... :)

And just cos I have very little to do right now, a graphical illustration of my thoughts on the zips:

I think I'd leave the pocket zip just for fun, I could leave a bottle of Odor-ific in there. :)

The bottom of the middle seam actually has a small HOLE in it (no wonder my wife complained about it being "dusty"!) so might as well start there!

what program did you use to make your graphic illustration?

Macromedia Flash (I think the last version before Adobe destroyed it)... :)
