      Thanks. I make a lot of bags and I don’t use commercial patterns – just make my own pattern after I come up with an idea and do a sketch of what I want the end result to look like.

    Oh my!!! This is fabulous!!! What sewing machine do you have? I have a Husqvarna E20, do you believe that it can withstand to sew something like that, too? I’d love to make bags but I am afraid! ha ha!

      I have a very old non-computerized little Bernina 1010 and I work the hell out of it. It is a wonderful little sewing machine. I have put it to the test with all kinds of heavy home dec and vinyl fabrics making bags. Don’t be afraid to try bags – I am self taught (a lot of mistakes along the way) but to date I have made about 700 bags and I am 80 years old and still at it.
