I'm so glad every one loves it. I'm in australia, and our vip night is this saturday night. its an interstate thign so its pretty big. there are some pretty hardcore lushies out there. i can't wait to craft more lush stuff. I used plastic fabric that i baught from the big fabric shop over here. basically i cut two pieces bigger then the paper, held then together with bobby pins and sewed them with a straight stitch. the only thing to note is when u sew, u need to put a piece of baking paper/tracing paper down underneath, and tear it off the seam afterwards. Do u want a tute?? i'm happy to do one the next time i make a big like this. I would kill for a japanese, chinese vertion of the lush times to make a bag with , that would be the best!
