1  Cat fabric bag & fusible fleece question in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by izzi on: January 04, 2007 11:14:50 AM
I thought you might like to see a piccie of the bag I made for a friend's Christmas.  I didn't have quite enough of the cat fabric to make the complete bag, so I added some black and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

Also, I have a question about washing fusible fleece.   I just bought some it and would like to use it to interline a bag.   Has anyone out there tried washing bags with fusible fleece in them?   I'd love to hear how it washed.  Did it keep its texture and was it still firmly stuck to the fabric after washing?

>laughing< ... no sewing machine could be a wee bit of a problem.

Anyway, a cup of coffee and another 5 minutes on the sewing machine, produced this ...

It has a vinyl window to view the needles and a drawstring top to hang.

Don't worry if it is of no use to you ... I made it to satisfy my own curiosity!

Good luck with finding something.

As I had a strip of cloth lying on my cutting board and the sewing machine was switched on, I thought I would run up a fabric pouch and see what it looked like.    
This is my first time posting pictures, so fingers crossed...

and open for display:

Only problem I can see with the fabric case is that it wouldn't give much protection to your needles when they were on display as people would be able to actually touch the needles.   A vinyl pouch would let people see them without causing much wear to them.

Oh, the case took about 10 minutes to make ... that included thinking time ... I would reckon if you were making a lot of them, it would take a couple of minutes maximum.

Hope that helps.

p.s. if you want the case to see how its made, happy to pop it in the post to you ... just e-mail your mailing address details to me... my e-mail address (remove the x's) is: xizzi@xcastleisle.com
