You don't love a woman  because she is beautiful; She is beautiful because you love her.

Life is short, Break the rules,
Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly,
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably,
And never regret anything that made you smile.

okay, i'm a bit confused...

when you sew the big pieces to the interfacing, do you put the right side of the fabric towards the interfacing, sew, and turn RSO, or do you sew it RSO and leave as-is? i can see how either way would work, but i think the first way would make alot of extra bulk in the seams...

also, for those who have made this with woven fabric instead of knits, has anyone tried using iron-on interfacing on the outer fabric, in addition to the sew-in craft interfacing? i'm thinking it would give the ruching some extra body, which it may need for interest on mine since it'll be solid brown on the outside.

I sewed the larger piece wrong side to the interfacing then treated it as one piece of fabric from then on. I did not use iron on  interfacing on the fabric. It sits a bit more stiffly than the knit to start with. I tweaked it a bit to make sure the position was good before sewing further. I wasn't so worried when I used the knit fabric.

I know you posted this forever ago, but since I just recently discovered craftster (I know, where have I been??), I have to be like everyone else and say that I LOVE this bag! I had never thought about turning my old t-shirts into bags, but it's such a great idea!
