So pretty! After you make your pocket panel, do you back it with inter-facing to make it stiffer?

Thanks for posting your tote bag! I especially like sewing the short strips on muslin pieces. Did you also use a stiffer interfacing for the lining or was the stiffness of the selvages enough?

Love your bag and anything made with selvages. Do I save mine? No, but I sure would like something made from them! Maybe one day

Unbelievable! Who would have thought a bag could look so nice and be as sturdy as the salvage edges of precious fabrics and be so beautiful! Job well done.
