Pressing Cotton Bags - Giving your bag a professional finish!

The secret to really professional looking cotton bags boils down to two things in my humble opinion - interfacing and pressing. Both subjects I cover in my latest YouTube video.

I quite often get the question about how my bags can look so crisp in photos despite then being made from cotton with fusible interfacing. For this look - the importance of taking 20 minutes pressing your bag after finishing it can not be stressed enough! I try to share this during my classes, but it's not always we have the time to talk about this to the extent I'd like. So I made a little tutorial showing how I do this. 

I recommend going to youtubehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2V93b_yxQk to watch this video. 
It'll give you better quality then the embedded version. 



In this video I also show how I use my beloved Clover Mini Iron II, it's such a great tool!

Here is also a sneak peek of my BRAND NEW BAG design! The bag is not completely finished in this video, but it's a good hint. ;)
