Kathy, a reader, and I were recently sharing comments about a bag that I wanted to make and that she is in the process of making with her granddaughter.  We were motivated by a video on Missouri Quilt Company & Crafty Gemini.  Kathy said though the video stressed using double sided fusible foam stabilizer, she used non-fusible.  She thought stitching it with the sew and flip method would work.

She said, "I also found my vintage Singer 15-91 machine the best one for moving through the thickness as we had trouble with the featherweight."

Here's the tip:  Kathy said that apparently she or her grand daughter did not take enough seam allowance at one spot and a seam started to come apart.  Since she didn't want to spend a lot of time unstitching all those strips, she came up with a solution.  She placed these darling white appliques over the seam and hand stitched them down.  Now no one is the wiser.  I think it adds a touch of charm to the bag.

What a clever idea Kathy.  Thanks for sharing!
