just wanted to say thanks again for this great tutorial which I just used in a bag i'm making- very good instructions and pictures- you've found your callling, Girl!

I have made several Jordy bags since finding this tutorial (I'll prove it when I get some pics!) but I can't get my straps to look good. They always have an exposed edge that frays and looks icky.
I need to get some stiffer interfacing, too.

I feel your pain, mnwild- I find straps difficult too- they're never very even and there's always a little bit showing- sometimes I just use something creative - like wide twill tape (like a thick ribbon) or webbing (like seatbelt stuff) to get around the whole turning them inside out etc- keep in mind that the stiffer the interfacing you use in the handles, the harder those little buggers are going to be to turn- especially if your handles are thin and long.  good luck.

your bag looks great, poordumbird- you really shouldn't sound all apologetic! It's great! not that i'm any better on the self-effacing respect but man, we ladies should give it a rest- that's what these forums are for.

wanted to also point out that there is an existing tutorial for making a lined bag with a zipper, try using the search thingie- I think comfits was the author.

Hi Debzy,

don't know if you're still searching for clock bits but here's a couple links i found recently when after the same thing- I can't vouch for either site as I've yet to order so do give feedback if you wind up using them- seems to only be cheap if one buys in bulk which is a bit of a bummer. 


(sorry don't kno how to shorten links!)

And as ties are naturally cut on the bias they make great bias tape substitute, especially the silk ones.

That's ace, plum-wine- and welcome.

Oh, go on, tell us your tricks of the trade. Did you use grommets in your holes?

I've used new ones as interfacing in coinpurses etc- something that doesn't need to be to stiff, or with appliques.....

....but even better, I stopped using them altogether by just throwing in a washrag or face cloth with a bit of diluted softner (need to dilute or it can stain). Works a treat.

Boygirlparty- what about a wall mounted multi-rung towel rack?Someone here ages ago posted instructions for making one- try a thorough search. I use to have one of these that I hung yards of fabric on- I use some sliding wire basket thingies from Ikea but I too, would like to get away from bringing more plastic (and Ikea for that matter) into my life.

 Martha Stewart has an organization book that someone gave me as a gift (hint?) and she kits out an old wardrobe into a crafty area,if you're keen I could try to scan it in for you, though she may have something on her site. It didn't look too difficult but Martha has a way of making everything look easy- a couple of dowel rods and some homasite and you're home free if you listen to her.....
