lazeedayzee thank you for the praise.

this one isn't reversible as I was hurrying to get to the class (quarterly software society) and threw a fast one together! The inside is just a plain bright yellow fabric print.

I could actually reverse it, though. And I could use wonderall fusible with some green/polka dot in shapes coordinated with other scraps to decorate it. . . hey! great idea! you've inspired me, thanks. . . I'll be back to you on that . . .


The bag is just two rectangles and a handle. The rectangles can be any size as long as both are the same size. So it is great for fast projects and scraps. Goes together in about 1/2 an hour sewing time. Maybe an hour with cutting and planning. Personally, I think the hardest part is planning a handle that is reversible, so that what shows goes with what doesn't show.

would gladly share if any one wanted it. PM or I could post

PinkyK  --However, I use a very stiff fuseable interfacing that is only "sticky" on one side for just about every project simply because I got 5 yards of it on sale cheap.

PinkyK, I bought a bolt of the stuff, because I had "big" ideas for making little cases with zippers for my friends. . . only I have the whole bolt, and never did the cases. . .  Actually that's on the agenda for my vacation. So I will have tons more for stuff.

PinkyK, love the skirt and the jewelry on your link.

I still don't understand how you'd get a braid with backing. would you lay a giant piece of cloth on the handbag sized interfacing, then scrunch it into a braid shape and iron?



PinkyK--what a fun invite!

Elby--Nice summery project!!  I can think of a few people that need sunglass pouches!!

OK--gonna dedicate this weekend to do a PINK project--inspired by all of you!

Thank you all for your kind words regarding my niece's birthday party invitation. The feathers are my favorite part to.  But then again, I really like the glitter glue water and the font of the stamp.  Heck, I just love the whole thing. We made a great team putting it together!  Cheesy

Sewknitter - I'm not sure a braided handle would need interfacing.  But if it does you could put on the interfacing then sew the "straps" (for lack of a better phrase) over on themselves so the interfacing is on the inside.  You can either make tubes (that will need to be turned right side out and pressed) then braid them or just reinforced strips of fabric with the interfacing and sew it onto itself to hide the interfacing/wrong side then braid those.

Also, thank you for your comments on my potholder skirt, purse and accessories! I was forced to stay home for two weeks while my doctors attempted to figure out what was wrong with me (a long story for another board) so I had LOTS of time to make something over the top! Last time I checked I was only six votes behind first place! With all of the uber talented people here on Craftster I'm psyched!  Grin Shocked

Elby, that is the cutest little sunglass bag!  I really like the fabric, and smart to use flannel for the lining.  (The sunglasses are very cool, too). 

PinkyK, the pink flamingo invitation is perfect!  I like all the detail, especially using the design theme on the back, too.  What a lucky little niece!

RonnieCat, did you decide which pink project you'll do?  I hope your friend Dragonfly is doing better.

PinkyK, I think we have several messages mixed up Wink I wouldn't use interfacing with the braid, but your original question was, "did I make it with interfacing?" So I was asking how one <would> use it. and everyone explained. Thank you, for the information.

Okay, after two very intense and long days of sewing and sewing, and ripping then sewing then ripping more and sewing. . . I finished the skirt for a little girl who probably couldn't afford the latest fashion.



This looks easy, but the bottom piece, well it is over 250 inches long! Didn't think ahead about it.

Any way the little girl tried it on and swirled and twirled. She loved it.

Here we go - my first post with pics!  This is the Ice-Cream-and-Flowers cushion/pillow I made for my friend - it's about 16"/40cm square.  Can you see the cones with the big globs of yummy strawberry ice-cream?



Hope this works!
