My blog is basically about my travels through sewing land making quilts and tote bags and purses. I am learning as I go and willing to help others. I love to sew and love fabric. I am a retired school teacher. I have a store on ebay http://stores.shop.ebay.com/Fabric-for-quilts-and-more and I am the owner of a yahoo group called sewingtotebagsandpurses
Here is the inside of my Lucille bag I made using Batik Fabrics. It also shows the purse organizer I ordered from Hong Kong on ebay. you can see the little white strips on each side of the bag where I put in a piece of elastic to inplace of gathering,.I did this instead because I used heavy Bosal fusible fleece on the outside and didn't think it would gather. the pattern from abbey Lanes Quilts did not call for interfacing. It called for an extra layer with the lining using canvas..I have not had a lot of luck with canvas so I just used the fusible and I am happy.
