When you are talking about the knots, do you mean in the thread or in the rope? I think I almost get it!

I made this nifty drawstring-ish bag and am having issues sewing two pieces of braided cord (rope-like thickness that has three braided strands that can be unravelled) together to make a loop/circle out of it.
I un-braided it and sewed each strand together one at a time, but the stitching didn't seem like it was going to hold in the cottony rope. (Its too tick to sew through all three stands at once)
Is there a better way? I feel like there is and that I am missing it.
Help please!!!  Undecided

Ooh shiny. Did you cut the holes in the sides too? Very nice. It had to be hard to sew through them. Nice!

I can't believe you sewed on that many buttons! I wish I was your sister! Where'd you get that many grey buttons? I keep trying to find large amounts of buttons, but I can only find brown, which is boring. Glad you mentioned glue not working though, maybe I don't need buttons after all....

That is so much cooler than extentions. I bet it'd stay in better too. I want some now. You look like a rag doll in a very good way. Do you think it'd stay in short hair? That's thhe only way my hair'd ever make it past my chin.

If you are really worried about sewing thin fabric, switch to a smaller needle size, then it doesn't make big holes when you sew. I never thought about using tissue as a stablizer before, that's brilliant! I heart this skirt, I need one now!

In Iowa City I love houseworks, they usually have good bales of fabric that are vintage and are good sized for clutches.

Your bag is awe-involking. I love the material, using home decor fabrics is one of my fave tricks for bags, cause it's always sturdier and the prints aren't as hokey.
