I’m making glacial progress on the Hot Patterns Classix Nouveau Pyramid Bag. Mostly because I’m making style decisions as I go along and I’m in no rush to complete it.
I ordered the knit tricot from Fashion Sewing Supply in black and fused the interfacing to the cut out skins. I don’t know that it changed the structure so much as this stage. But, it’s nice to have the reinforcement.
I’ve also sewn the straps / handles. But, I’m pretty sure I’m going to add piping along the inside.
I’ve used these hair thingies from the beauty supply to hold together the pieces on the pattern.
I’m also sewing the leather with my walking foot on my vintage Morse. Not that I need to power of the Morse. I just love sewing on it so a straight stitch only project is great for the Morse.
Still need to get several components including a pocket zipper, purse feet and a brass seperating zipper. I may run up to New York this November and save my supply list for then.
