What in the world are all of these jordy bags i'm hearing about. what makes them so popular personally i dont see whats so special
 Huh
Hi!
Someone named "The Jordy" posted a tutorial on how to make flat bottomed bags a couple of years ago.  I guess that is why they are called Jordy Bags.  The tutorial is really popular because it is easy to do and you can make so many variations.  Even someone who is no great genius at sewing (like me) can do it.  Plus it's fun!

Thanks! Cheesy

Yeah, I used heavy fusible interfacing on both the outer fabric and on the lining.  I put an extra layer on the bottoms to stiffen them up.  On my last bag I glued a piece of stiff felt inside the bottom and it worked really well.  Have fun making them!

P.S.  I finally got a website up the other day.  Check it out! Wink http://norahnadine.4t.com

That green back is sooooooooo cute!! About the ribbon, how did you attach it? I tried attaching some sewing and maybe I just need more practice and I tried heavy fusible tape and it didn't work out too well....I tried selling my bags on ebay. You're better off sellling them on your own. You can even sell them on here I'm sure. I ended up losing money using ebay. No one bid on them (except one) and then I was flooded with emails after the auctions ended wanting to know if I would sell them for cheaper! It was frustrating b/c people don't understand how much time goes into some bags and think it's going to be as cheap as something that is mass produced and purchased at Walmart for $5. Ok I'll step off my soap box. Again, great bags! Very very cute!

I sewed the ribbon onto the front half of the outside fabric (there isn't any ribbon on the back) before I sewed the outside fabric onto the lining.  I think you are right about e-bay.  I decided to try to sell my bags on my own.  I got a website up but now I am trying to find a way to get it out there.
