Thanks for your answer about selling bags from patterns. I will use your answer as a guide as I continue to use the techniques I learn from published patterns to design my own. By the way, your bags are lovely.

Hi Carla, Finally found this site again. I now have it marked in my Favorites. I noticed you mentined that you use a pattern and then change it to get your own design. I have a question: Some of the patterns I have looked at state that you can't sell bags made from the pattern. I would like to use a pattern to learn the way the bag is constructed and then use the way it is constructed (using fusibles, non-fusibles, interfacings, ect.) but wonder if that would be all right to do for bags I sell? I look at pictures of bags and then come up with my own design using ideas I see from lots of pictures. I need help in how bags are made to be soft or hard sided, how to align the snaps, how to put in zippers, ect. Could I use a pattern to learn these things and then use it in my own bag designs?

hello. Thanks for answering my quilting question a couple of weeks back and sorry for the delay. I plan on taking a class when I am fully recovered from an injury. Thanks so much. BTW: I just added you as a friend. Hope that was OK. Cele

Hello. Sorry that it's taken me so long to comment. I have to enable my comments section. I check the site often, but overlooked this. Thanks so much for your suggestion for beginners. I checked out about 3 beginning quilting books from the library first. i also have a blog and had a quilter I met at a Sewing Lounge that I attend do an article to raise more interest in quilting.

Blogging has helped overall. I've only been doing it for 7 months and to my surprise, it has really taken off.

Please look when you can and I'd love to have you as a guest writer. Thank you again. :-)

I haven't cross stitched in soooo long but started when I was very young. I have a huge egret pattern and outer space pattern sitting and waiting patiently. :)
