Look at you guys with all the suggestions!!! Thanks!
I think the duct tape and the contact paper would make the bag too inflexible, and easier to see under my shirt. I think it has to be dyed for it to do what I want it to do. But those are good ideas!
I'm hoping to get to it later today, but I've got to change the struts on my car and replace some engine gaskets. So if I can get that finished up quickly I'll get to the bag dying. I want to do it outside to prevent a real mess. If not later today.........tomorrow if the weather holds. It's a beautiful Spring weekend here in MD and there's so much to do this time of year. But I'll get to it ASAP.
Igster.......I've made hundreds of bag covers. With zippers, velcro, you name it..........I can make one with my eyes closed! Just not practical for me. I'm guessing you don't understand what the life of a short-gutter can be like. If I'm outside working and drinking a lot I could have to empty my ostomy bag anywhere from every 5 minutes to every 30 minutes over the course of hours. That's a lot of times to zip and unzip something. If I drink something really stupid I'll see it in my bag before I've finished drinking it all. So I need a way to make my bag inconspicuous that doesn't require any more work......and not be in the way if things get messy. I think the dye thing is the right route, but we'll see. Where did I put that can of spray paint........................
