Thanks Cheesy
Pink and black would be hot.
This fabric is really crap though! It's already making it fluff balls and I've used the bag three times.  Tongue oh well, it was super cheap.

If you want to use less expensive fabric and you don't want it to fray, there are a few ways of treating the edges before sewing. One way is to use diluted fabric glue such as sobo. Dilute it with water and use something like a paint brush and paint all the edges after cutting out the pattern. Let dry and sew. You can also use something called fray check. It comes in a little bottle at the fabric store. Another way is to use iron on interfacing (the heavy kind) on all the fabric before cutting out your pattern. You fabric will look more expensive and last longer without fraying. Just a suggestion. I love that pinstripe fabric you used. Your cutting and sewing looks very good. You are a talented sewer.

Awr thank you Cheesy

And yep, considered interfacing. Sounds like a great idea to strengthen fabric as well as keeping it from fraying. Only thing is that I can't even find a fabric store round my town, much less find somewhere to buy interfacing, etc. There used to be one downtown but it closed a few months ago (literally a couple of weeks before I got into proper sewing). Now I get my fabric at the market.
I'll keep your tips in mind for when I do find a shop! Hopefully that will be soon, market fabric = low quality.

There are many fabric shops on line that sell good fabric at pretty good prices. One is Quilter.com and another one is: www.fabric.com. You should also check out Ebay for fabric or interfacing.

There are more, just google fabric.
