I think I actually saw it somewhere on here a year ago when someone was complaining about how her machine doesn't sew the way it used to thanks to too much vinyl. That's primarily why I have stayed away from it!
So do I need a Teflon foot or a Roller foot? Husqvarna carries both types, and I'm not sure which is best.
hi everyone This is beautiful bag, I love the shape and the color. Did you use a pattern for that bag. I would love to make something similar for my Mom. Great job
I made the pattern myself... took a long time to get the right size too ARGH... didn't want it to be too small or too large... can't put the straps too far apart or it bulges in the wrong spots! Very difficult. I recommend using a lot of muslin to test size and floppiness
I made my sister one of these designs for Christmas last year, and have been hording this Amy Butler fabric for myself until this past weekend when I finally ponied up the guts to cut into it.
I really wanted a brown corduroy, but I can't find it ANYWHERE right now, so I combed through the home decor section of Hancock's and found this leather-like material. It feels like leather... looks like leather... but it's actually a homedec-weight microsuede.
Here are the pictures:
Me like ^_^ !!!
It's about 14" wide and 8" tall. It expands to be roughly 4" deep and has an interior zippered pocket. I kind of just wanted something I could chuck my stuff into. I'm not even concerned about security since it sits under my arm and flops shut when sitting on a table.
Well, update! She loves it and used it right away. Her first reaction was "You MADE this???" which was nice to hear! She stuffed it with enough to fill up a suitcase though and it seemed to hold up nicely.
I used 1 layer of fleece sandwiched between a layer of peltex and the lining fabric. It's not as shock resistent, but it's no more or less protected than in something like a neoprene sleeve that seems to be so popular these days.
