There's also a place in Sanger, which is north of Denton, that's in their down town. It's called The Purple Umbrella and they have a lot of booths inside with crafted/repurposed clothing and fashion items.

How long is the strap for the handle of the first bag pictured? My friend has asked me to make her a bag and she loves the length of your handle/strap.

Thanks!

I have two similar store-bought skirts made out of cotton in my closet. I was hoping to make one out of a silky material that I have. Maybe I'm not brave enough. Smiley

Your patience and willingness to answer our questions astounds me.

Would you mind answering one more? 

I want to add a gusseted zipper to a square bag. Is that possible? I'm making something similar to the "Pleatness Bag" and would like for that zipper to not be at the top of the bag so that I can do a fun little tab with a brooch on it.

Looking at my personal store bought bag that is similar, I see that they don't attach the gusset at the ends of the bag. I could do that, but I'm wondering if I did something similar to your tabs at the ends of the zipper, only make the entire width of the gussets and the zipper have a tab and sew that to the end of the lining...if that'd work.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Smiley

We live in a rental and I want a black/white/gray bedroom. Those were the colors at our wedding and I think they make a timeless statement. Unfortunately, the walls in our house are ALL cream! (except those few spots in the kitchen where the mint green pops through)

So I'm kind of at a loss. I did want to show you what I'm hoping to do on our windows. I have the fabric, so I'm just going to make patterns and make something like this. http://www3.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?DeptID=60156&CatID=60447&GrpTyp=PRD&ItemID=155370e&attrtype=&attrvalue=&CMID=60156|60195&Fltr=&Srt=&QL=F&IND=7&cmVirtualCat=&CmCatId=60156|60195|60447

Hope you figure something out. Smiley

What did you decide to do?Huh

I would probably have made oversized curtains that go from ceiling to floor on the mid-sized window to help balance the huge-ness of the patio doors. Then maybe to a faux stained glass or even just put up a canopy and hid the clerestory completely.

I'd love to see pictures of the final product!

You could use fusible webbing to make the seams instead of sewing them. That might save you some time and frustration.

I chose to make them out of the duck fabric. The only time I had a problem with the needle was sewing in the zipper. I didn't think it out well and it ended up breaking my needle. Sad

2 appliques done, one purse finished and one purse in the making. The third is waiting for the recipient to make a final selection on her interior fabric.

I just used something like stitch witchery to attach the applique to the bag, then a machine satin stitch to take care of the edges. They look really nice and didn't have a problem with shadowing...maybe because of the fusible webbing?

This is AWESOME! Smiley 


I'm gluten-free and have to be very careful about food when out and about. I always carry a purse full of snacks, but I hate the baggies, plus when my 8 year old sees the baggy he wants the food. Smiley   I think I'll have to make some of these to keep my G-free snacks in.

Thanks so much for sharing your idea.
