I decided I needed a bigger bag - one that would hold a quilt, so I could take it with me and work on the binding and such.
I ordered a pattern. I went to Jo-Ann's and bought fusibles. I hate fusibles, they are so unquilt-like. Stiff and artificial, not soft, warm and comforting as quilts should be.
But this is not going to be a quilt.
I got out my batiks and starting sorting through them.
I cut everything out and started to sew...
|Here's the pattern with the beautiful bags on the cover.|
|First step, fusing the fabric to fusible batting.|
Things did not go well, I eventually decided to give up. I would have to go buy more needles and thread, or something.
I've already spent too much money on fusibles, some of which I think are the wrong thing. I sent away on Amazon for the brand names mentioned in the pattern. I'll wait for them to get here and re-assess.
