I've made progress with my bag. It took a day and some change to ziz zag the burlap to the twill for stabilization.
I did indeed use the clear thread and it worked out fantastically. I believe I will be cutting out and constructing the bag and the lining later today.
Hey, there is no thread on top! Thanks clear thread!
I also put in this little note so if anyone opens this bag way in the future, I hope they will get a kick out of this note.
I'd also like to offer a new giveaway.
For some reason the last giveaway was never claimed, so I consider it forfeit now. I'll re-giveaway that one later on. I thought it was time I offered up one of my reproductions as a giveaway. I love this pattern and think whoever wins it will have a blast.
You don't have to follow my blog, though it would be nice. To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is add your entry to this post. You have until midnight (my time) July 12th. Be prompt, I check time stamps. I'll announce the winner on July 13th.
