41  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Pre-washing fabric when using interfacing on: April 30, 2012 11:52:40 AM
In the past I've never really prewashed fabric unless it came from the thrift store.  I've washed a few of the bags and purses I've made and they've come out fine.  But I'm making them for a lot of other people now and would hate for their bag to shrink differently from the lining due to not prewashing.  So I'm prewashing fabrics but how does that work when I use fusible interfacing?  Does interfacing not shrink?

St. Louis Cardinal's credit card pouches.  This picture shows front and back.


Also made a couple with snaps.  Back looks the same as the one above with the STL.


And a makeup bag and toiletry roll up for my swap partner!


Thanks for looking!

I'm thinking the post office typed in the wrong zip on the confirmation paperwork and since that is scanned, that is what the computers were going by.  I've had trouble with this post office before but it was a long time ago.  Lesson learned!  I will go to the "big" post office next time instead of the little rinky dink one!  Anyway, so glad it made it!

pearljam94, so glad you finally got it!  Did I write the wrong zip on there?  I'm wondering if it was my mistake or the post office.  Glad you like! 
missmelmarie, it was so frustrating being able to see where my package was and not knowing how to tell someone it was in the wrong place! lol.  Hopefully yours will make it safely too! Wink

Well I sent my package to my partner, however she still hasn't received. Sad  I've been tracking it and it is wandering around Michigan.  Supposed to be going to Montana.  I checked my receipt and the zip code on the receipt is a Michigan one.  Not sure if it was my mistake or the post office.   Huh  I'm keeping an eye on it hoping it will eventually make it's way to my partner or back to me.  If it gets stuck in the mail system forever, I will make a new one!  So sorry to my partner!  Not a good way to start my first swap!  I will make sure she gets a swap package one way or another though.  Does anyone know if there is a number or something I can call for usps to tell them that they need to change the zip code?  I looked on their website.  All I found was something saying that if it hadn't arrived at it's destination in 5 days, I could file a complaint.  But it didn't say anything about what to do if you have a tracking number and can see where it is!  Undecided

Very cute!  I made some of these today!  So fun!  And I did the same as you...tried to use 4" zippers.  Didn't work so well. Sad  Now I have about 20 zippers that I don't know what I'm going to do with! lol.
