These projects were so fun to sew up! I had fun working with this new substrate for Cloud 9 Fabrics. Jessica Jones designed this really great retro inspired collection of great prints on bark cloth called Time Warp (shipping to shops in November!). It has such a great texture and presses so nicely. It is a much looser weave than a quilting cotton so I made sure to use a lot of pins when sewing and quilting. It does shift around a bit while sewing, so I would definitely recommend using pins and taking your time.
For the Super Tote I tried using Soft & Stable instead of Pellon 808. I basted the Soft & Stable to the Exterior A & B pieces. For the rest I used Pellon SF101 including the lining pieces. I really like the way the Soft & Stable gives it a sturdiness, but I think it’s a bit of overkill honestly. I think that the 808 and SF101 combined as in the pattern are really suitable for the recommended fabrics. If you have your heart set on just a quilting cotton for the main exterior pieces and don’t want to do Quilt-as-you-go (or quilting at all), I think the Soft & Stable is a great option! Yay for options!
This Cargo Duffle was really quick to put together. I had cut out all the canvas and batting a while back when I was making a different Cargo Duffle. I figured it was just as easy to cut out an extra set of those duffle pieces! It came in handy. Skipping the front pockets made things go even quicker and shows off the main prints really well.
