this might be an unbelievably stupid question, but my brain really isnt working today, and i havent sewn anything for ages! i'm going to be making the amy butler nappy bag soon (when all the fabric i've ordered arrives). as its going to be a nappy bag and will probably get dirty and chucked in the washing machine, should i wash the fabric before i cut it?

thanks!  Grin
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / fab fabric! on: March 09, 2007 02:39:27 PM

I've been looking for ages for cute fabric, but as i'm in the UK, its really hard to get it (all the good fabric is in the US, and I don't want to pay for the postage). This site offers reasonable postage charges and prices for the fabric.

Just thought I'd let y'all know Smiley

i've seen it on ebay...you can also buy oilcloth tablecloths with cool designs, so its worth having a look round for them in the kitchenware depts Smiley

there's a really helpful tute for putting zip pockets in lining: http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/02/zippered_inner_.html
7  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / fabric shops in london on: March 01, 2007 04:45:36 AM

i've been trying to find decent fabric for bag making for a while, but my local fabric shop only has flimsy, old lady cotton.
does anyone know of any good fabric shops in london? (pref. central)

thanks!  Grin

thanks for the help! aml, your idea sounds great, and a lot easier than trying to do a zip! i thought that the fur might be a problem with getting caught in the zip. i'll have a go at that and post a pic when its done Smiley
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / fluffy hot water bottle cover on: December 03, 2006 11:16:05 AM
i'm attempting to make a cover out of fluffy fur for a heart shaped hot water bottle, and one side needs to have a zip. I made a practice one out of normal fabric, which didnt turn out too well, and was hard enough without fur everywhere (its very fluffy)!
this is the bottle:

and this is my rubbish paint drawing of the cover:

there needs to be a hole to let the plug bit stick out. the black dots is where the zip will be.
Does anyone have any ideas of how I could make this without wanting to poke out my eyes in frustration?

Thanks!  Grin
