11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Will my fabric rip? on: January 06, 2007 04:55:56 PM
I would recommend iron on interfacing. Because the bag is going to be used for heavy duty school books, I'd also recommend that you get some fleece or quilted calico and sew this in between the outer (with the interfacing attached) and your lining. This will provide some protection from bumps for your books. I know how expensive those things can get!

Be careful when purchasing cheap interfacing - often is is very brittle, almost like paper and it makes your bag feel crunchy. A great tip when applying fusible interfacing is to turn the temperature down - often when you apply interfacing it bubbles - this is because the heat is too high.

I don't quite understand what you are asking. Are you asking how you can attach handles when you have already sewn up the top of the bag? If you can be a little clearer then I can help.

You could also make a unique luggage tag with scrap fabric and vinyl. Just use an old luggage tag as a template for your fabric.

What about taking a self portrait photo of yourself, editing the photo in Photoshop and changing the colour scheme so that you get a kind of Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe pop art thing happening.

Then print the photos onto fabric and applique your pop art fabric onto you handbag. Fabric printing supplies: http://www.tallpoppycraft.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=39&products_id=127

I am helping out a final year high school student with something very similar, so hope this helps!
20  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: Is everyone happy with their current bead suppliers? on: May 16, 2006 10:55:09 PM
Thanks guys for your input. If given the choice, would your preference be to buy mixed beads all of different shapes and colours, or to buy mixed beads of different shapes but all of one colour theme.
