1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / applique-ing a woven fabric to a stretch fabric? is it possible? on: February 09, 2009 11:36:06 AM
Ok, I know it's possible in the small scale- as in putting a flower made from quilting cotton onto a t-shirt.

But I am specifically asking about putting a collar like from a mens dress shirt  onto a t-shirt . The t- shirt has to be stretchy enough to go over the head. So, when I put the collar on, do I stretch the neck of t=shirt as far as I'm sewing the two together? won't that make it misshapen..
What type of needle should I use?
I have a really cute idea but trouble with the implementation.. any help is much appreciated! I have been sewing forever but not a lot of experience with knits.

Alright y'all I saw this bag http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=15216&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=354&iMainCat=336
on the anthropologie website and fell in love with it... However #1 I couldn't see paying for it #2 it was REALLY gigantic and #3 I'm always trying to reduce my stash of stuff- so here is what I came up with.


inside ( not done stitching in the lining yet because my machine must be on vacation or something..

and detail of top/handles

The differences are that mine is only about 3/4 of the size and the brown is a soft heavy weight felt, not leather.
Anyway, I felt it came out pretty nice especially for winging it w/out a pattern- and then when I actually saw the real thing in the store I was pretty amazed at how close my version came out.
If only all my projects came out this well! Total cost: $3.16 for brown zipper.
