I just started lesson 1 Tbottom tote. I’m not clear on both questions mentioned in the thread above:
1) Strap pattern: the master I cut at 3/4 inch, but adding 3/8 inch seam allowance to the outside pattern all the way around doesn’t make it wide enough to glue two strips of stays down the middle and have enough for turning as shown in the video…..how wide did Linda cut her outside pattern for the 3/4 inch strap master pattern. Hope that question makes sense. Image attached.
2) I’m still confuse between RUBBER cement and CONTACT cement. … The ” Best Test Contact Cement” featured in the video is no longer manufactured……What’s the best alternative for fabric and leather. Thank you
