This tote is absolutely beautiful from the color to the texture to the sturdiness.Iv enever heard of hymo canvas or haircanvas but will definitely be checking it out since my city has gone bagless and I am constantly making totes for everyone. This one would be for extra special ocassion ~ I wouldn't wnat to get it messed up with food!
I found the haircanvas cheapest online. But, to warn you, it's pretty pricey. I bought it to interface a wool coat and hated all of the hand basting. I eventually just used a fusible for the coat and had the haircanvas left over!
I just ran out of haircanvas so my next tote will be made with Duck Canvas. I hope it works just as well, because it's a lot cheaper!
I believe this is what I used, and this is the source I ordered from: http://www.bblackandsons.com/medium-weight-hymo-70-p-287.html
(Other sources had it as high as $38/yd!!)
Oh my goodness, $38/yd is out of my league! Let us know how the duct canvas works out becuase I know I can find that at my local fabric shop!
Terryt1955 I will! Elizabeth Hartman (blog Oh Fransson!) seems to be quite particular about her projects (in a good way!) and she uses the duck canvas. :) I hope that means it will work well! (If not, that source charged $12/yd, I think. So I might splurge on it once in awhile....)
This is so awesome! I hope the duck works just as nicely since I'm about to start piecing my Elizabeth Hartman inspired Weekender!! I cut all the duck today so here it goes! :) I absolutely love your colors!
