171  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / Philly "Garment" District? on: March 28, 2004 03:06:04 PM
I was wondering if there was a pseudo-Garment district in philly.  i vaguely remember one near South Street, like a block or two over at the river end o' South Street.

i could also be crazy.

otherwise, some suggestions for fab fabric stores would be appreciated.

It took me long enough to figure out how to post pictures, but here is my Jordy bag.  It's supposed to be for my mom, but we'll see how that goes...

i actually made mine a little differently than the tutorial.  instead of cutting out the squares, you can just leave them, sew to the edge, then cut the extra "tip" off.  you have to do the same weird "pinching" thing too.  

also, i didn't do the hole in the lining thing.  i just sewed them seperately, and then placed the lining in the outer bag, and sewed around the top.  i was planning a decorative line of stitching, so that's why it works.

finally, i stole the kate spade idea, and stitched along the creases and corner type places to give the bag more strength and form.

lastly, i didn't use any, but there's this great stuff called "buckram" (or something really close)  that gives you that great firmness.  i just used mid-heavyweight interfacing in this one.

lastly again, i'm going to put in a snap closure as well.  just haven't done it yet.  

whew.  enough.

I made one using some cream upholstery fabric (with little dragonflies and ladybugs) and a red zipper.  I lined it with a store bought (actually i got it for free) clear plastic pencil case (i took off the crappy slider closure).  I actually stitched (with my sewing machine, watch your needle!) thru the fabric and the plastic case.  That way I don't have to worry about my highlighters and pens leaking thru onto the pretty fabric.  Now I don't have one of those lame pencil bags like all the other dorky med students.   Tongue
