I'm sorry, one more question, did you use the lightweight denim that they recommend?

The pattern calls for interlining, did you do that? (I loved the bag so much I bought my own copy of the book on Ebay)

Did you use interfacing on this bag? (It's awesome!)

Your bags are awesome!  I love that bright-in-your-face fabric!
Did you use interfacing? Fusible or non-fusible? Interlining? 

Great job!
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Interfacing vs. Interlining on: August 10, 2006 06:14:55 PM
I've been on a bag making kick lately and I've been using heavy interfacing (fusible as I'm using cotton fabrics) in all of them and I've been happy with the results....however, I'm looking at a pattern book now and it recommends interlining (sewing a piece of fabric, wrong sides together with the outer purse fabric) and treating it as one. 

Has anyone ever done this?  Should I be doing this?  It seems like it would greatly increase the cost of making a bag if you have to buy the outer fabric, lining AND this interlining which would never be seen.

Any thoughts?? If you use both methods, when would you use the interlining method?

I've been busy.

The two bags were based on this tutorial:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=108647.0

I played with the dimensions a bit and lengthened the handles.  I hate short handles!


Here's number one:

This one was made from a thrifted duvet cover.  I loved it so much, it was hard to cut, but I would have NEVER used it as a duvet cover.

I also made this, but I'm not sure what forum to put it in, it's a cover for my organizer.

Let me know what you think!

Those are great!  I'm just now doing two at once on 2 circs.  I don't love it, either, but maybe I'll grow to love it.
Where did you get your pattern? I like the look of your heels better than the ones on my pattern.

The pattern came from my LYS, it's a plain vanilla sock pattern with a gusset heel.

Great socks! What yarn did you use? The stripes look fantastic! Cheesy

The yarn is Lana Grossa.  I can't find a link to the exact yarn I used, sorry.

Thanks everyone for the great comments...I'm almost inspired enough to cast on again Smiley

Here are my first socks on two circular needles.  I love this method, but I don't think I love it more than socks on dpn's.

I started these in May and completely stalled on them when they were about 95% done.  All I had left to do was the toe on the second pair and I just didn't want to.  The thing is, I didn't want to cast anything else on until these were done so I've pretty much not been knitting.  Does this ever happen to you?

Well, I finally got these off the needles today and I can't wait to finally cast on another pair.

The tutorial can be found here:


You just need to scroll up a wee bit.

I've made one of these and they are awesome!

Your flower isn't 'wonky' at all! I think it looks terrific! However, how come I can't see the flower in the first photo of your bag..? Did you not sew it on yet?

I can't find my glue gun at the moment.....I need to glue a pin to the back of the flower before I can attach it to the bag.  The last photo has the flower just sitting on the bag for now.
