Bag Project 7 - Reversible Bucket Bag (2)

:)  a big smile on my face...

I have completed the reversible bucket bag inspired by MyBotang's Reversible Bucket Bag - Sew along.






Here are some useful notes:
1) I made the fabric flower using the following tutorial:
http://spaziolilla.blogspot.com/2010/03/facciamo-insiemeun-fiore-in-stoffa-sei.html


2) Two types of binding  - Straight or Bias
I always wonder if I could make binding tapes cutting along the straight grain of the fabric.  Finally I understood now.  Thanks to Sew,Mama,Sew (see page 141 of the instructions) .  If you are binding straight edges, then cutting the fabric along the straight grain is fine.  However, if you are binding curve edges, then we need to use bias binding.  Here is a tutorial for making bias tape: http://artthreads.blogspot.com/2010/08/wednesday-sewing-bias-tape.html


3) How to make sure when binding edges, we actually sew on both sides of bias tape?  
I have to unpick 2 times this round as the sewing didn't catch one side of the bias tape.  :(   So, finally I read the instructions carefully..  We need to make sure the bias tape is taller on the wrong side of the fabric and then sew close to the bottom edge of the bias tape on the right side... then you will catch both sides quick easily.. :)   See point 4 of page 143 of the instructions.


Bye now and have a good weekend...
