Bag news

I took my 5 prototype bags to school this week and got great feedback. One of the top requests is that the bags be lined. Since I want to stay in the recycle theme im going to try using men's dress shirts. There is an endless supply in thrift stores. Also, George happens to be retiring and he has generously offed me a large pile of shirts.

People wanted pockets on the inside so if I cut the linings include the breast pocket - bingo!

I had a bit of trouble sewing the jeans on my fancy machine so a classmate suggested that I try my Singer Featherweight
she says they are workhorses.
