61  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Moms and Dads out there: What DOES go in a DIAPER BAG? on: August 16, 2005 04:02:41 AM
The bare essentials are:
diapers
wipes
burp cloth
changing pad
lightweight blanket
bottle ( if using)
pacifier (if using)
Change of clothes

You could look at diaper bags at your loacal Target or Walmart to get an idea of how big they are.  I just made one for a friend that is the size of a regular tote bag.

You could do this a coulple of different ways.  You could use the Jordy concept for the bottom of the bag.  Just cut you fabric pieces to the shape and size you need then use the Jordy method to finish the bottom.  The only problem you may have with this is the seams at the bottom.  They will be weaker and more likely to come apart. 
You could also use the gusset concept.  Cut two side pieces in the shape you need then have a gusset that goes all the way around.  This may be the stronger version.  You will not have a seam across the very bottom.  It may be a little more difficult though.  Just make sure your measurements correct.  You could also use a cheap fabric to practice on.  Then once it is right you can use it for the lining of the bag. (no waste)

I have used clear plastic tubing for handles.  It can be filled with tiny beads, glitter etc. or covered with a fabric tube.
Chain
rope
small bungees
electrical wire
carabiners
thrift store belts

I think for this you will just have to take some time and wander through the store.

You may be able to get some info from the Tandy Leather website.   I'm not sure the exact web address but you can do a search for Tandy Leather.

Try doing a seacr for  Singer sewing Manuals.  The company may have one available online.  You may also be able to call the company and get one

To me, it looks like the floral is a rectangle with the bottom corners rounded.  The upper corners are folded into each other, which forms the point.  The black piece starts at the corner and then is sewn around the edge stopping at the other corner.  This forms a slit to sew the zipper in.  (Think of how you start off making a paper hat)

Is there any special trick to getting the fabric to feed through the printer?

You can also use butcher paper.  You iron the fabric to the waxed side then cut to size and send through the printer.  It doesn't leave residue on you fabric.  You could also buy fabric sheets for your printer.
