Tonbo Bag

Yay!! I finally convinced Shelley to list her beautiful Tonbo Satchel pattern on Craftsy! http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/accessory/tonbo-a-japanese-style-satchel/203175?rceId=1461546275279~s7adsdxo  She has so many great projects and I hope she posts them all. She pays great attention to detail and gives excellent sewing machine instruction in each one.

We used this bag for our TopStitchers Club and  the techniques covered were, Sashiko, applique, perfect edge stitching, ruffling, corded pin tucks and zipper insertion without a zipper foot.












She includes fantastic close-ups of the fabric and foot placement.

I can hardly wait til she puts up her next one!!

Old Singers are awesome, but what can you say about the new models? Are they still so reliable? I`m interested in SINGER Futura XL-400 - the embroidery machine I see almost in every advertisement nowadays. I need to buy a present for mom and don`t want to pay so much for smth bad.
