Hi! Very beautiful bag:) I have a question. I am having trouble with my sewing machine when sewing the folded parts of strap. Your strap sewing looks perfect. My machine is Bernina 380 and use 110 /18 needle with zipper food..still the machine gets stuck and stops.. What would you recommend me? I sew in slow motion, is that the problem? Thank you very much...
Joanly answered:
I would recommend Brett Baras class on how to design a handbag. She gives some great tips on eliminating bulk in the straps by cutting away some of the fabric that is underneath and not seen. It's kind of hard to explain...she shows exactly how to do it in her class!
