Title: Cordura, girls color.
Post by: ManMarVelez on November 06, 2016, 10:13:22 AM
Searching for Cordura or another good fabric for the womans bag. Bright, stripped, printed, with pictures, as girls love.

Another idea: go for a solid white base color and spice it up with different color webbings, plasticware, thread and zipper. Look at what Dave @ BOgear are doing and you'll understand! ;)

Never work with polyester 600d. Will buy and try. Victor, your idea is good, but very hard and long time to sew, I think.

Poly 600D sews and handles very similar to Cordura 1000D. They have similar texture, weight, and feel. The poly has a bit of a rubber feel to it. It's actually pretty awesome fabric, and cheap. Some of the printed poly 600 have a slightly softer hand to them - they feel as thick as 1000D but as soft and pliable as 500D. If your machine is set up for 500-1000D, you will only have to make minor adjustments to your machine.
