    I've used an ordinary sewing machine to make lens pouches. I used garment leather which is quite thin and would be suitable for bag bellows, and it sewed beautifully. I think anything thicker than garment leather might be a different matter with an ordinary machine.

    As a high school student I had a part-time job in a wet suit factory. Parkway fabricators, South Amboy, NJ. They would make sure the material was cut squarely and smoothly. Use glue, pinching the pieces together. Then the fabric covering would be sewed with nylon thread by machine. Those seams were never going to come apart, which was a good thing if you were using one of their inflatable dry suits, diving under ice.

    Here are bag bellows instructions with patterns. Itís in German, but Google translate works well enough.
