Q&A with Coopdy

ameryan asked:
I really like this - cool fabric! Laminated is practical. You said maybe not the wisest choice - did you just mean as a first project? Would you use laminated again?
Coopdy answered:
Thank you. Yeah as a the first time making the bag I would likely recommend using another fabric and while the laminate posed a few extra problems with bulk I would still make another one with it as I use my bag a lot and like the durability.
Coopdy asked:
Thanks! I love laminate fabric and have made projects with it before but it was a lot of fabric to put through my serger with fusible fleece and a zipper in one pass. I also had a thin layer of tissue paper to prevent the laminate from sticking to my serger bed. Next time I'll put painter's tape over the serger bed instead.
Coopdy answered:
Oops I should have put this under the reply for ameryan, but my iPad version did not allow we to add a reply.
Pin Queen asked:
I really like your bag, thanks for sharing. I was thinking about trying laminate, but think my machine may struggle. I'm about to try my first bag at the weekend.
Coopdy answered:
Perhaps try making something really simple with laminate first, like a lunch bag. I think you'll really like having some bags made with laminate. Good luck!
crinkle asked:
I love your bag and well done using the laminate - it looks great.
Coopdy answered:
Thank you, it was fun and easy to make.
