1  CANADA / Ontario / referral for sewing machine shop in downtown Toronto on: May 30, 2009 10:41:36 PM
Can anyone recommend a good sewing machine shop in downtown Toronto where I can buy a used sewing machine? 
My daughter is planning to attend University of Toronto in the fall, and will need a reliable, affordable machine. 
I think there is some old information here, but I'd like more recent information.
Thanks!
Caroline

This bag is an intriguing idea - the shape has a lot of possibilities. 

Your fabric choices are fresh and modern, and look good with the shape of the bag! 

Thanks for the link to sewtakeahike,  that's an interesting blog - always happy to find new blogs, especially with tutes like this bag! Smiley

I like your bags, the star looks cute and the red with the stripes looks very modern!

You may already have resolved this, but I always try stuff out on a sample - rather than risking a piece I've invested a lot of time and effort in - I think the spray will work, if you do several light coats, and allow each coat to dry thoroughly before repeating...but it could make the inks bleed, or it might not really protect the paper adequately - test your sample with a spray bottle, maybe.
Good Luck!  I want to make a paper chain purse, but I know it's a lot of work!

You could appplique bits and pieces of different fabrics on the backpack - choose prints and shapes that appeal to you - to make it yours - you could also sew on interesting buttons, and you could make shrinky dinks (with holes put in before you shrink them) of images you like and sew them on - you could make your initials, too...

Oops, just reread your post - thought I'd mention that I've seen clear vinyl available at fabric stores sewn into pockets for id, credit cards - if that look would work with your wallets - you can use colored thread - it looks edgy or alternative -

Hi, I don't know if they would be the right configuration, but I have bought credit card sleeves of different configurations at Longs Drug stores here in Northern California.  I think they would be available at many drug stores and stationery stores, and at some office supply stores.  I wouldn't be surprised to find them at a store selling nice wallets, maybe a luggage store.
Good luck!

thank you for making this tut - believe it or not, I've been waiting to see it, checking periodically for it, since you promised it would come.  I thought it would be worth looking for, and I was right.  You do nice work!  Thanks again!
