we love the jordy technique at my house!
I was just fiddling with folding this material and came up with this...


I'm of two minds about topstitching this bag because I don't want lose the form of the pleats at the top  Huh

That is great! It doesn't look like it's desperate for top stitching, it seems to look pretty finished without it.

You guys are great!
The fabric is alannah hill left overs that I got at a second shop.
as for the pleating I'll see if I can write a tutorial on the weekend.
basically I just made about 8 5mm folds in the center of the fabric then pinned it down and stitched the up and down pattern.
Then I basted the pleated part onto a peice that I'd cut int the jordy pattern style and trimmed and pleated so it fit kinda flatly.
then I made it into the jordy bag
i'm sure that's a terrible description but I hope it helps

I love many of the bags on this site, but this is by far my favorite!  I'm not sure if it's the fabric colors, the pattern, or the amazing detail on the pleats.

My question....you said that you folded and stitched the pleats on a loose piece of fabric, then basted that pleated piece onto the body of the Jordy.  Does it blend in together OK - e.g. is the basting disguised enough to work with non-patterned fabric and not look separate from the body of the bag?

OK...my question is probably very unclear - sorry!  If you do decide to put up a tutorial, you will be my Craftster hero! Smiley
