Canvas Bag by Corvus Corax
I'm making some custom bags out of some heavy canvas. Will a sewing machine handle such a tough fabric? Do I need special equipment/machines/needles/thread? -- -------------- Corvus Corax - Ba-caw!

Shocking the employees at Jo-Ann's by duh who
I went into Jo-Ann's tonight to get some interfacing. I'm not sure how the woman got the idea that I was "repairing" my own shirts. When I said "Repair? I make them from scratch." And then there's Betzina's books that never deal with men's clothing. Its such a hard life living with this...

Plackets again by duh who
I was just looking in my Reader's Digest sewing guide, and it shows another placket style. I think its a faced placket that is used with French cuffs. I'm wondering how it would look if I used a regular cuff, not a folded over French Cuff, and, instead of having two button holes for cufflinks,...
