My mother-in-law brought a piece of silk home from China a while back, which she intended for a skirt. At home she discovered that the fabric was pieced and therefore unsuitable for clothing; instead I got to add a new piece of fabric to my stash. MIL will be 70 soon and I though it would be nice to make her a little purse from the silk; I know she would love one.
Now it all sounds good, but there is just a little problem. The silk is sooo slippery. I have bought an iron-on stabilizer (Vlieselin) and will try a little snippet to see if it works. The other option I can think of is to fuse silk and batting together using fusible web.
Anybody who has made bags from slippery silk (successfully)? Any helpful ideas would be highly appreciated, thank you!
