I have a problem with the D rings as well. I made the loops for them out of fabric and then put the rings in and it would slip to the 'corner' of the ring, which wore the loop out. If I do that again I'm going to sew right under the straight edge of the ring so it doesn't move.

Out of lurking post, by the way. I've since updated Scrumps into a laptop case so he's even squishier now. He also got a mouth upgrade. I'll have to post some pictures soon.

what inspires you ?

Do you use a regular needle in the machine when you sew this?

I always seem to break the needle when I try to sew fur fabric. It gets too thick.

Epp! I love this. thanks for posting the tute and I appreciate your bravery in apologizing. I consider Craftster family so I can see how it could hurt if someone tries to steal original ideas.

maybe it's because i have no idea what to sew, but i come bearing many questions.
do you use a regular needle?
can you repost the second picture in the tutorial since it's not showing up?
Since I'm a complete beginner, the lining, do you attach that near the end? or is that sewn in during the part that i quoted?
Do you think you could send me dimensions of everything, because I was a little confused.
email: eileen.loser@gmail.com
i followed chainreaction's messenger bag tutorial for most of this. the only part that differs would be the flap, mine's all one peice. just make sure when you're sewing the fur that it's all going in the downward direction, otherwise it looks odd. and <b>don't</b> sew together the outer and inner yet..we have details to add.
what do you mean by outer and inner and the flap being in one piece?

im sorry that im bothering you with questions, but i love the baf and its really cute.
did you hand sew it?
