Our shop is uninsulated and the halogen spots in the tracklights are focused right on the needle of the machines and the lights on the machines are hovering 50 watt heaters.
It is workable with 3 fans after sunset, and works better if I keep the main lights off.  
Making tight bags requires me to be in a good focused mood, and to be able to see what I am doing, so I have mainly been doing looser bags.  Here are three.

This one got started a few months ago.  All it needed was sides, and I couldn’t pick the right material.  After doing the Carhartt shorts, I have swatches of nice brown cotton duck that was perfect.  It is heavy.  I like the innertube panels.

Trim on the flap is inner tube, the body is large diameter cotton hose.

Inside pockets are ReStore coverall twill and a kid’s belt.  Lining is old German army duffel bag.
