I had to give it another shot! I used the jordy bag tute to make bags for my daughter and for her poppets.

I needed to make one for myself... Badly.... I wanted it to close, but I didn't have any zipper on my hands... I wanted it to make me feel Spring has come.... so are springy rains.... So I made that:


I used oil cloth, some snaps to close it and coton fabric to line it.

here is a close shot of the side snap,

and some pics of the bag opening fanciness.. ( yes, I had a lot of fun taking them!!)



and last is the back side pic...


So here is my springy bag, and I am happy I don't have this obsession anymore...

Solution found for my extra snap: I cut a flower from the same oil cloth and snapped it... Good thing is that I can change the little extra as often as I want, i jut can snap on anything I want!!.... Just have to snap the little extra and snap it on the bag!

it's a really cute bag!  i think you could make a smallish flower with a snap in the middle of it and snap that onto the "orphan" snap.

Ooh I Like that a lot!

I've just got a sewing machine (yesterday) and am intrigued by all the different settings and stuff- did you have to use a particular needle/stitch/ etc setting to work with this?


Does that make sense at all? Sorry, I'm a lurker usually

nothing special but a long stitch.. because if you use a small one, you may tear the oil cloth...

I had my first sewing machine last september. And see what I can do with it.... and I only use it when I am on holidays.... once every 5 weeks or so... so .... Have fun, experiment and show us what you made !!

I just found it in a regular store... it's a large tablecloth. I bought it for 15. And I already made 2 bags out of it. I have enough left for at least 3 or 4 more... AND it had a nice apple green bias all around, which I removed carefully and used in several projects already... So go look for a nice tablecloth and imagine the possibilities !!

Good thing with table cloth is taht they are so easy to sew, they don't 'stick' to your sewing machine and make nice projects... indeed hahaha

I always was disappointed with the prints of oil cloths I could find here. And I loved the colors of  this one... I just love to go to a store for something I can alter or use... for far cheaper than the 'regular' or specialised stuff...

have fun!
