thank you everyone!
I LOVE this bag. Just a few questions - 1. Did you fuse the fur to the vinyl first or did you just pin and sew them togehter? 2. How did you get the stitching on the applique so good? I can never get it just right, you must be a Master!
fusing the vinyl and the fur together would have been the smart thing to do, but i've done a lot of work with stuffed animals (hence the scrap fur lying around) and i don't like what the iron does when ironed directly onto fur, and i doubt i can iron vinyl, especially the "right" side.
i hear there's a spray fusing that works?
other than that, i actually despise
pinning things. hehe. but i didn't pin this one because i didn't' want the pins to leave holes in the vinyl.
needless to say the fur was difficult to do. i sewed it on to the front and back panels, and then just didn't bother with the rest of the panels and sewed four layers together on the machine without any pinning.
i have to rethink what i'm going to do next time.
