What padding did you use? I've used quilting batting before and that seemed "OK" but made the bag look really chunky.

Thanks! I will definitely make a trip out there. I always see such nice vinyls that I would love to use on bags, but can't sew them right now Sad

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.

I've heard that sewing vinyl can really screw up your sewing machine. Has anyone else heard that???

I've been afraid to pick up a teflon foot and give it a shot because of that.

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 Smiley

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 Tongue

Thanks! I took the pictures and edited the background in photoshop to be more white than my beige drywall Smiley

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.

I stuff it with tissue paper (from the gift wrap section) and then put it in a sturdy box. I don't ship in an envelope, because it's way too floppy!

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.
