1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / What type of material to use on purse? on: September 15, 2009 01:33:33 PM
Hey all,
   I'm making purses with appliqued initials for Christmas. I found some AWESOME black cotton duck fabric dirt cheap. It was much cheaper than using cotton and adding interfacing. However, I've hit a little stumper. Do I make the front of the bag out of the sturdy duck material and attach the applique to that? OR Do I use a lighter weight cotton with interfacing?

The duck is somewhat rough in texture whereas quilter's cotton is much more smooth. The appliques will be made of quilter's cotton.

Thanks in advance.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Best Way to finish a seam with Dotted Swiss material on: April 03, 2009 09:22:57 AM
Hey all,
    I'm working on a skirt with multiple godets. It's in a yellow sheer dotted swiss material. I'm wondering what the best way to finish the seams would be so that the edges don't ravel, but the multiple seams for the godets don't distract from the rest of the skirt. I just did a zigzag overedge stitch for the bottom hem, but that's not going to work for the seams in the godets.

I thought about using FrayCheck. I've never used it before and don't know much about it. Will the fray check be like glue and affect the movement of the godets?

Thanks for any help!
