I've been busy busting out some more bags for my shop. I made this tasty little number today. I love it! Reminds me of yummy tangerines!





Lately, I've been obsessed with cute buttons. And fabric flowers. I'm trying different ideas for flowers. For those of you who have sewn grosgrain ribbon onto projects before, how do you do it? When I do it, the needles holes are huge. I'm not using an upholsetry needle either. I just think it looks so bad when you can see huge needles holes on crisp white ribbon. Maybe that's just me. For now, I've been using heavy duty Stitch Witchery and pray it holds up. But I'd  much rather sew it on, ya know?

Thanks for looking.

ok that's gorgeous Smiley
i make bags also, but mine are always floppy because i haven't figured out interfacing yet...i keep almost buying some to try out, but always get intimidated...what kind do you use? your bag looks really sturdy and stiff.

Thanks!!!  Grin

Don't be intimidated by interfacing. It's your friend. Really! I've used several different kinds by Pellon. This one is one of the thinnest they make because well...it's all I had left Smiley I prefer a medium weight one though. I use it for most of my projects. I've ordered some heavy weight though recently because it seems I'm going through a bag phase right now Smiley Don't be scared. Just get a yard of it from the fabric store and try it in your next bag. I just have to make the hole I use to turn the bag out a little bit bigger the thicker the interfacing I use. I hope this helps.

that does help! do you cut the interfacing the same size as your other fabric peices and then just stich it right in? thanks so much for the tips!
