1  <---- Frantically Searching for This Discontinued Fabric. Please help! in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by Twinma on: August 05, 2012 06:14:21 AM
I am taking a chance to see if someone here may have some of this fabric and would be willing to sell it to me.  Of course, I am short for an item in my shop.

It is from Walmart and I believe it was a clearance fabric.  I checked two stores that still sell fabric and they are out.

Does this look familiar to anyone?

Also, does anyone have any advice for finding  discontinued fabric.  I unfortunately do not have the name of the pattern either.  I know, I suck!

Thanks in advance to those of you that check your stashes! Smiley

2  My New Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Twinma on: July 31, 2011 06:59:32 PM
I fell in love with this fabric and made a nice sized tote bag.  I use it as an everyday purse but it holds a lot.

I had a rubber stamp made and use indelible ink to make my labels.  I named my line after our female Great Dane and the area we live.

OK, got to ten posts and I am displaying my completed projects all over the place.  Sorry!  Wink

Here is a small Rag Mag Bag with grosgrain ribbon

Here is a large version with store bought handles


A couple things I need to try to make this more sturdy:  Don't fold over the tops of the vertical strips.  It makes it too thick to sew through.  I want to be able to sew through the top because my lining wants to fall away from the shell using the two-sided, really gooey tape.  Not sure how else to give it a nicer finished (and more durable) look. 

Anyone else find a better way to make the lining fit more permanently in the shell?

5  Another 241 Tote First in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Twinma on: July 16, 2011 11:16:03 AM
Thanks Wyrillco for the inspiration!  Your totes are awesome.

I went and purchased Anna Graham's 241 Tote pattern rigt away and made this yesterday.  I am a novice with a curmudgeon of an ancient Brother machine so it took me 5 hours. Yikes,  I have a long road ahead of me.  I was still amazed how well and sturdy this bag turned out!  I loooove the outer pockets for my always hard to find cell and keys.   

I spent about $20 on fabric an interfacing at JoAnn's.  I will be waiting for a good sale to make some more. 

Where is everyone that sells their bags finding cheap enough fabric to keep pricing in line?
