    no,, i don't think it was much different... i did it on my 1941 singer.. it handled it just fine.. and this particular fabric isn't heavy... i enjoyed watching this one come alive.. can't wait to finish it up.. i am going to do another one just like it but in reverse..

    Reversing the fabrics will also be absolutely gorgeous. A whole different personality.

    thankyou everyone.. i will repost tomorrow when i finish it up... then stay tune for the reverse model.. she sent a yard of each.. but it is much wider so i can get two out of it.. the next one will be the ruby on top and green on bottom...

    Very pretty! I love the fabrics, and had wondered how it would turn out in the heavier weighted ones. Nice to know it sews perfectly fine with them.

    You did a wonderful job - and the look is very luscious (for a purse!).

    The bag is beautiful! I have seen many on here and tonight I finally ordered the pattern so I can make one for myself. Can't wait to get it as I already have lots of fabric to choose from.
