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?
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.
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.
