I love the bag, Deepika, thanks for this review! I also appreciate your tip on the zipper pocket in the lining. An absolute necessity! The book sounds great, I'll have to look it up.

Peltex is great stuff. I think it has fusible glue on both sides of it rather than one side like Timtex.

Hey, Deepika, GREAT PURSE! Are any of those fabrics by chance Waverly Home Dec fabrics in 45" width sold on bolts? Cuz they look really similar to ones I'm using to make some curtains and Roman shades with, except I went with the the blue-green-chocolate brown color scheme (without the orange, purple and magenta in your fabric) ...

Deepika said...
Nany the peltex I have isnt fusible. Or maybe it is. I didnt see any gluey texture on either side. Do you get yours from Joanns?
Jackie YES! These are from the 45" wide bolts and I had a tough time deciding between the colors I chose and the ones you mentioned :) I like the new Home dec line they are carrying now. Perfect for making cute handbags. And hey... when you are done with the Roman Shades, I'd love to see them.
Thanks everyone for your kind comments! I am finishing up my version now and I will post a photo of that soon too.

Well, after reading Deepika's review on May 16, I just had to add this book in my collection! It arrived yesterday and it really is a good value with so many different pattern/styles. Your bags are very nice, Deepika. I can't wait to make a few.

So excited to find this review. from bag I covet from your Threads article. Where did you buy the handle Deepika?

Deepika said...
Shabby, believe it or not, the handle was from Joann's fabrics! They have really good handles these days. Everytime I go there, I just have to control myself and not come home with a few more. I have a big box filled with all sorts of handles. I am a collector I guess ;-)
