This is absolutely perfect. I just had my second daughter 4 weeks ago and my 3yo is fighting over the boppy so she can nurse her babies. I wanted to make her one of her own for Xmas, but no sense reinventing the wheel. Thank you so much for the tutorial.

The only problem is, I can't seem to be able to "click" on your picture in order to save the template.  I can probably draw it on my own from your measurements and shape, but I thought if you got on here soon enough and could help out, that would be even better.

Thanks again!

I haven't tried your type of glue yet, but I'm having trouble with my glues "staining" the ribbon like it's wet.  The first type of glue I tried was a super glue, but it says "craft" and doesn't adhere skin immediately like the other super glues do.  The second glue I tried (as recommended per another tut) was a clear craft glue, but it says not to use on fabric.  The second one doesn't adhere the ribbon to the clip very well and takes a long time to dry. My super glue holds much better and dries quicker.  They both make the ribbon itself unwearable without something over the top to hide the staining.

Any thoughts? What kind of glue are you using? Is it a craft glue or an all purpose/industrial type glue?  does it bleed through the ribbon?

Thanks for any input.

Nice job. What is reversed applique?

This looks exactly like a dress I'm currently working on, from a pattern. It doesn't call for being reversible, but that would be easy to remedy.  I'll get the numbers when I don't a lo attatched to me.

Those are awesome!!  I also would like to try the ruffles.  How much do you use in relation to the diameter of the skirt?  I need to find some deals like that Smiley

I like the link about the boxy bag. What I have is like the picture just after step 3.  The handles on the front or back might work. I'll try to post pics when I get a chance.

But the bag I'm making is complimenting this one that I made. [urlhttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236591.0][/url]

Thanks for helping. I was beginning to wonder if anyone was going to respond Wink

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Need help figuring out strap placement/ideas on: May 11, 2008 10:49:39 PM
I have seemed to gotten myself into a pickle. I'm attempting to make a bag small enough to fit inside my messanger/diaper bag to hold all of my necessities for those times I leave dd with someone else or go somewhere by myself and don't need to tote around the larger bag.

I was using this tut http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0 to make a zippered pouch, but since it didn't have handles/straps, now I don't know where to go from here.  I currently have the zipper attached to both sides of the lining and outsides of bag and topstitched in place.  The sides/bottom are not currently sewn together, so it's looking like the view in Step 8. 

I was unsure as to leaving it square or making it a Jordy style, but it appears that I probably should make it more square so that it will hold stuff better.  I think that I can add gussets to the sides and bottom and attach my material with my D ring to the gusset.  My only worry is the tight corners up next to the zipper and the fact that my lining is already in place inside the bag (versus being outside of it waiting to be tucked in).

Can anyone help me to figure out where to go from here? I would greatly appreciate it.  If there are suggestions on how to forgo the gussets and still attach a strap of some sort, I'd be game for that too.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Great pattern!  Can you do the edging without a serger? I'd love to do something like that, but I don't have a serger.
