Emmaline Bags and Sewing Patterns. I saw Shape Moth's review of the bag pattern and I loved her fabric choice, so I went in the same direction. I used Home Town Square by sweetwater Gray/Grey canvas and Home Town Cross Town by Sweetwater in Mist.
I took me 3 long days of sewing to complete this bag. Either I am a slow sewer, or just way to methodical. As methodical as I thought I was being, I did have a few mistakes. Thanks goodness I wasn't to far in to it to correct them.
The next time I make a bag I will use canvas for the outer shell and lining. Why? I hate fusing interfacing!!! It takes forever. No matter how good you think you have it attached, It eventually screws up. I painstakingly added it to the canvas, and the lining. Now that it is done, I don't think I needed it. Especially if I would have used canvas for the lining. Also, last year, I made a school bag for my daughter. Once water hits it(like rain) it starts to bubble and wrinkle. I plan on making a wallet which I know will need some sort of interfacing for structure. I think I will opt for the sew in type and see how that goes.
