i don't know if she did, but interfacing helps give the fabric (tshirt fabric is usually very thin and stretchy) some body so you don't pucker the shirt while you embroider. if it's done with care, you shouldn't be able to see the interfacing around the embroidered image. it takes like 30 seconds to rip it away from the image.

that is beautiful. i would incorporate it into a white skirt, with the embroidered image in the bottom corner of the skirt.

is it full time?

i work on weekends for 10 bucks an hour in a pharmacy, and it's nice to have a bit of a steady cash flow even though i can sell handmade items for over 150 a piece because of time constraints for making those items (ie i'm a student!)

would you make more than what you'd normally earn in a week working for the place?

i'm gonna ask a question:

what's a good durable thread to use for stitching the vinyl?

thanks!

LOVE IT! i'd lve to see a matching woman pouch too - you could put snaps on the back of each so they could be connected. lol

that IS such a great idea. i was thinking of doing a woman pouch anyways, but the snap idea is just perfect!

my machine is totally cool with it if i make sure i guide it in case it wobbles around. i can recommend using tear away interfacing which will give it some grip so it'll slide through the machine better - probably a strip on each side, the side facing the machine, and the side facing the foot.

ooops. i forgot to answer the stitching question
How did you get the stitching on the applique so good?  I can never get it just right, you must be a Master! Grin

i did it on a sewing machine...
i anticipated vinyl going through the machine would cause problems (ie the vinyl may not have caught and moved through the machine properly) but stitching the image on was the easiest part! Smiley

thanks! the main blue part is vinyl, and the skin is like...plasticky vinyl. i have no idea what it is.

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! Grin


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.
