I was strolling through the mall yesterday and I realized that these little babies were really hot right now. I found one that really caught my eye and made one that looks almost just like it (different colors, material, and a few modifications of course). It's made of baby blue corduroy and a black silky material.

This is a hand painted button that I then coated with my mom's nail polish. (Hey it worked! I wanted to go out and by some clear coat of some sort, but I was too lazy and it was too cold)

This is my favorite part! My label. It's the best label I ever made. I used the zigzag stich on the machine and wrote it out on white ribbon. Sweetness...

Beautiful, beautiful duffle, button and label!  You must be really pleased with it.  How heavy an interfacing did you use?  It seems to hold its shape without it being filled with stuff.   Ooh, I want one in sage velveteen.

Sewer Rat : I went over to the fabric store and asked her for the "strongest" fusable interfacing (I know strongest isn't the right word to use, I guess I could blame this on me being French). I hope that kind of helped.  Undecided

BTW, how did you get your curved seams sooo perfect?  Did you hand baste them first?  Is the interfacing the size of the round ends minus the seam allowance?  Any tips would be greatly appreciated?

I cut out all the pieces of fabric I need and then I cover them completely in interfacing..... I don't leave a space without interfacing for the seam allowance. I just sew right over the interfacing. I find it looks better. As for the round edges... Uhh... I use like 1 million pins to keep the two pieces together which pretty much evens out the bumps. I'm sorry, I'm not good at explaining things. I wish I could be of more help.  Undecided
