Wink Re: Wanna start sewing my own CDs

I just started sewing my own pfs! I found a contour pattern on ebay for $5 and they email it to you...I really like them, I was able to put velcro on the 'tabs' so that it holds a little better and they fit wonderfully on my ds that is about 25# as well! for the 'wet zone' I bought some microfiber towels and some flannel. for the lining I used fleece on some and sherpa on others (I love the way the sherpa feels!) Basically I ended up with 8 layers including the lining...I also used a contoured doubler to do the 'wet zone' pieces. If I can help with anything else please let me know...feel free to pm me or email me. FYI Use a strong needle!!!

Check out the craft forum on here. There is a sticky thread with a list of resources and free patterns. It can be just as addicting to make as to buy lol.
