for a more complete DIY, u can also make a case so that the bag can be folded into it, or sew a pocket onto the bag so that the bag can be folded inside-out into it, making reference to the designs of some eco-bag . : )p.s eco-bags, some in very very beautiful patterns, are sold at like $10 at some hawker stalls in Central.. so the frugal me, after considering the cost & time required, will not consider making a diy one : Pbut i envy that u hv a sewing machine! i hv always yearned to hv one..if it is not expensive. i know some small sewing machine priced like $199, but some ppl said they broke down easily. i hv yet to find my dream machine for my sewing project ideas...
Thanks for your comment, Selina! It does give me alot useful info.Actually I would rather to buy one if I see any in beauiful patten for saving time. But so far I couldn't see one really make me at present a bright, so I DIY with no choice.For the sewing machine, pls dont buy that small one with priced like $199, it is useless! Wish your sewing project come true soon!
thanks. may i know what brand of sewing machine u are using? and how much is it /where to buy ... perhaps the fact that u are in merchandising (??) field and know ppl in the industry may give me some insight..
I bought mine from 勝家, basic type costed $1xxx like 10 years before. I think now it needs near $2000 up. I know some sewing machine in China eg 蝴蝶牌, 蜻蜓牌, those brands are famous as well but just costed around $1000. However, pls be aware of the function, some of them can only sew single stitch, no overlock stitch (鈒骨), no chain stitch (鎖針) etc.I suggest to buy 勝家 because it is easier to have maintenance in HK.
