Birdie Sling

… também conhecida como a mala que me tirou do sério. O que me fez avançar foi gostar tanto deste tecido japonês às flores. Uff, está terminada!

… a.k.a. the bag that made me curse. What kept me going was this Japanese flowers print that I love. Uff, it’s finished!

Esta birdie sling é uma faca de dois gumes: é enorme (felizmente sou alta), é pesada (deixei-me de entretelas termocolantes e afins e decidi substituir tudo por lona… sim, a lona envelhece melhor; claro, é mais natural; de facto, a textura é óptima… mas pesa!), demorou demasiadas horas a fazer… mas é tão gira, não é?

I have mixed feelings towards this birdie sling: it’s huge (but I’m tall so it’s not so bad), it’s heavy (I’m done with fusible interfacing and its friends and decided to replace everything with canvas… yes, canvas ages beautifully; sure, it’s much more natural; yeah, the texture is great… but it’s heavy!), it took much too long to sew… but it’s so cute, isn’t it?


E esta também vai passear a Nova Iorque!

And this one is also going to New York for a stroll!

    Hi Karyn! I’m going to NYC on Saturday, in 2 days 🙂 As far as interfacing is concerned, cotton flannel is also a good alternative and it gives a wonderful, soft touch to the item.Nice to see you around here! 🙂

    Wow, your fabrics are spectacular! A perfect design to show off that large scale print.I too found the bag to be really big. I used sew in woven interfacing and thought it added too much weight as well. If I did another I might try a non-woven sew in just so it isn’t so heavy!
