Who remembers Sandcastle fabric?
It was fabulous for bags and stitcheries because it was a thick and had a weave that looked like it was quilted. Sadly the company that produced it went out of business several years ago. The good news is that there is a nearly identical product called Sand Dune available now. It is $30.00 per metre but is 47" or 1.2m wide.
I have been using it to make a bag over the last few days and I am at the lining and putting together stage. I have appliqued on the side panels, the front and on the pocket which will go on the back. It has been really nice to stitch on as it is very stable.
I am planning on sewing tomorrow to get it finished.
