Cutting and Fusing

After hours of cutting and fusing, I am finally ready to start sewing my Sunday Sling. While there doesn’t appear to be lots of pieces with this bag, several of the templates need to be folded over (some more than once) to create a new pattern – pair that up with exterior fabrics, lining material, and several layers of interfacing and you’ve got a whole day’s worth of activity right there. While it seems like I’m complaining (and to some extend I am because cutting is my least favorite activity…. following by ironing), it’s really worth it in the end as all that interfacing really makes for a professional looking bag.
On a side note, I’m having lots of problems with the comments portion of my site. Spam has really become a problem over the past few months so we’ve been tinkering with the filters. Consequently, for whatever reason, a lot of your comments are not appearing on the site and are being flagged as spam…. and the spam comments are still sneaking through! To try to remedy this, you’ll find numerous posts are now closed and the filters have been changed again. If you attempt to post, but do not see your comment on the site – don’t hesitate to send me an email (stacysews[at] This will help us fix the filters again until the new (and hopefully improved) site is up and running!
