I am buying a husky- viking sewing machine on friday and I am going to be whipping up a new batch of bags in the here soon using a mostly new design. I liked my old design but I figured out a much better way to do the flap, the front pockets, and the strap. I am really excited, plus mu mom has taught my several really cool embroidery and appliqué techniques that I am excited to try out.
I doubt I make a whole lot of bags or sell them for all that much, more than anything it is just something I enjoy doing and is a fun hobby.
anyway, i know the next bag will have a better strap and vinyl liner and a different flap. what other things do you guys look for when you try out bags?
one of my first bags and first designs
one of my more recent bags and fix or six designs later
and to anybody thinking of making there own bags just stick with it, it is easier than it looks and lots of the people on the board will be more than willing to help you, they helped me out
