Am I the only one that loves corduroy?









My first attempt at making a Jordy bag, to be used for classes that do not require enough materials to fit in a backpack. It measures (lwh) 12in x 4.5in x 9in. The outside is a beige corduroy and the lining is a floral print quilting fabric. It has two beige square velcro closures and a pocket to fit my cell phone, wallet, and some writing utensils. I love love love it. Cheesy

Very cute!  You did a great job.  I especially like how you have the floral on the outside of the strap.

How did you attach the tree applique?  I tried doing one and stitching with a really close zigzag and it was a disaster.  Just wondering how you got it to look so neat.  Thanks!

Thanks! I actually didn't attach the tree. (;  I traced the pattern onto the reverse side of the corduroy, spread some no-fray fabric glue on the traced pattern, let it dry, then cut it out. Then, I just cut out a small piece of the floral print and glued it to the back of the corduroy so that it would show through and ironed my interfacing onto the whole outer piece. The magic is the no-fray fabric glue--it really doesn't fray! (:

Thanks! I had been meaning to make a jordy bag for the longest time, but I don't usually use others' patterns because I like to make it up as I go along, hah, but this turned out surprising well. (:  Be sure to show us yours when you're done!

You're definitely not the only one who loves corduroy - especially when it's made into such a cute bag! I also love your lining fabric Smiley
