1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Spring Fling ruffley turqiouse goodness. My first attempt at non-kid sewing! on: June 15, 2010 03:24:48 PM
Hi, you did a really good job with this pattern. I'm in the process of making the same one and I was wondering if you had to make any adjustments for the bust area? I hope I'm not too late with this question. Also, I was wondering what kind of material you used.

Thanks.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / 2 random questions--Gussets and Seam Ripping on: July 21, 2009 08:12:50 AM
The first is about ripping seams.  How often do you undo work that is not done to your standard? I was making this pouch on which I was using binding for the very first time, and it was so mentally tiring because I wanted, very badly, to get it right. Well, I got through it, only to find that it's slightly wonky. Others who have looked at it haven't seen anything until I pointed it out. So, I'm torn now. Should I undo everything and try again (I say try) to get it right? Or do I let it go, learn from the experience, and make the next one better? I'm just curious about what others do in these cases.

The second question is about adding a gusset. Is there an easy way to get the exact measurement for the circle? I find that after I measure, there's always a little difference once I start sewing. Am I doing something wrong and how could I fix that?

Thanks for any help.

Sam, there are different ways that the zippers can be done without making them look funky. Check out the tutorial section for some ideas. 

And, your hardware is actually called swivel hooks. There are many varieties but I've never that particular one before. They are available from many sources on eBay.

I like the brown and pink one, even though I'm not a big pink fan. But they are all beautiful. For improvement, you can try doing a top stitch for the zippers, it gives a nice finished look.

And I'm curious about your hardware, care to share your source?

Do you want your pouch to have a lining? If not this sound like a good challange, with a lining it will be challenging-er.

Thanks. I haven't been to Fabricland in a while, since I left the city. Now I miss them very much... and it just dawned on me what your name means.

That is a very lovely bag... and a Leafs fan too. I love the way you went all out. Where did you get the fabric?

I would undo the seams and laminate it. Probably not with a typical laminate machine. I got pictures of the heavy plastic from the fabric store, and a an iron. Of course, you would want to test this out first before you ruin your vintage item.

would this purse be ok without the interfacing? my bag ripped today and now I am going to sew my a new one but I don't have any interfacing Huh...

It depends on the type of fabric you will be using, and what you will be carrying in the bag. Interface is invaluable if you are going to give your bag a good knocking about. It makes your fabric more durable, and if you sew on it it makes your seams stronger so they don't rip.

Your bag is gorgeous! If your keychain loop was bigger you could have just run your belt through it, so there will be no way of it falling off. I'm worried about you snap coming free. Good job anyway.
