I'm still hanging around to find out if you used a pattern, if so, which one.  Or if you came up with this on your own.  I really would like to take a shot at this! Grin

This is great you did a really wonderful job.  I am impressed with the stitch work!

WHEW!  Glad you seem to have gotten it taken care of!  Hancock's and JoAnn's sells a Teflon cover that protects from just this sort of thing.  I got one for the very same "multi-tasking" reason.  I believe it was $7.50 and I got it for 1/2 of at Hancock's sale this weekend! Grin

WOW!  I have been looking for someting like this to make!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of the textures!

Did you come up with the pattern on your own?  I have a 20 month old and another coming in the next few weeks.  I need something super comfy to carry and your's certainly would fit the bill.  LOVE how the handle does.  Also, with two in diapers, cloth diapers at that, room is especially important as is organization.  I am one of those moms that always has what the other mom runs out of or forgets. Wink

I'd really love to tackle this, but am way to much the novice to attempt without some sort of guide/pattern/tute.

Hmmmm, as for the piping, as I can tell - you either LOVE making it or you HATE making it Tongue

You have really, really done a quite AWESOME bag!

I so enjoy seeing all of these Jordy's and the slight differences in each of them.

I posted this over in discussion and questions, but wanted to post it here too.  I have seen a couple of you have piped the bags you have posted on this thread (yes, I have read the thread ALL the way through  Shocked ) so maybe you can help -

I am new to piping.  I am pretty much using this tute to make my bag.  I am not going to have the handle(s), as this is on a much larger scale. 

If I want to pipe this bag -

1.  One one side/section of the bag, I take the piping across the top and down the sides and stop at the top of the square (for the bottom)?

2. Do I just pipe the top on the opposite section?  In another words - I take one whole side/section and pipe across the top and down the sides and then just across the top on the other side/section?

3.  Since I will have a zipper closure on the top - should I even pipe the top?  If I do, it goes between the zipper and the outer fabric, right?  If I would typically topstitch along the zipper - would I skip this when using the piping?

Thanks so much for your help on this, I have been pondering this for a while and really am itching to get started on the bag that I want to pipe. 

You guys are so darn helpful here!

29  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing vinyl - need a special zipper? on: May 25, 2005 08:28:37 AM
It really is going to depend on the actual vinyl you select.  There are lots of different textures and densitys out there.  The absolute best thing is ask where you are buying it or take a sample of what you are wanting to use into a store and ask the sales ladies their opinion.  They really know their stuff! 

Too, I sew a bag with a vinyl lining and a fabric outter.  I wash it on hot and dry it afterwards and the vinyl type material I use seals back up at the stitch holes.  Be careful with pining before stitching.  Try using paper or binder clips, this will eliminate any additional holes.  Along the same idea, be careful with your tension, too tight will cause the holes to pull open.  DEFINITELY test on a scrap of the exact fabric/vinyl you will be using for your project first!

With all the extra additions needed, I'd be curious if the roll o' zippers is the most cost effective?!  Any comparisons been done?

CJ

I wanted a nice heavy duty zipper for my projects.  I wanted my bags to be ablel to be used over and over with no zipper sticking/hang up or jerky opening issues. 

I compared the price of the actual zipper and length I needed to the roll zipper and I was saving $1 + per zipper!  As I mentioned in my previous post, there are really no additions needed as many sites and posters here suggest just whip stictching or sew stitiching your zipper stops instead of buying the actual stops and adding them.  It works just as well and in many cases even looks better.

Hope that gives you some of the info you are looking for!
