lexiebarnes.com and timbuk2.com. They are bag makers. I don't want their patterned ballistic nylon, I just want some cool fabric to make my own bags. I can't seem to find it patterned anywhere, even on Etsy and Ebay.
I'm more than likely going to be moving to Seattle soon, so maybe I can scope some out there. It drives me nuts that I can't find bags that have all the specifics I want, but I can't get the fabric I want to make them!
I think that we are here....we are just holed up in our houses crafting!
I live in BFE Eastern Montana. We've got a little quilt shop here, and if I want to travel to Williston or Havre I can hit larger craft stores. It's a 3 hours drive either way, though.
I want to hear about what kind of wool festivals and such are going on up here! I know that we will be having the Eastern state fair here in Glasgow, and I will try to hit up some farmers for fleece. I really want to get ahold of some raw fleece!
If you see them at your Michael's and LYS (I am so jealous!), then make up some craftster business cards and get them here!
How I would do it is sew the suede up the sides with the right sides facing each other. When you are done you should have an inside out tube of suede. Slide it onto the bag, and then sew all the way around. The right side of the suede should be facing the right side of the bag fabric. Then you will be able to just flip the suede up, and there ya go. Does that make sense?
THanks for letting us know about the messenger, Sarahpanda.
I just finished my weekender bag last night (well, I still need to tack the lining in.), and it was a fantastic pattern. Everything is there for you to do it and the instructions are very easy to follow. This was my first pattern that I have ever used.
