Hi Cuties, I’ve been doing some FSL stuff and some shopping bags. I’ve just done this one and everyone who has seen it wants to know where I get them! I just say “Oh! I made it, and no, I don’t make them to sell!” These will be a gift for my ladies luncheon this Christmas. Love Chris

Love the tote! Is there a zipper at the top edge? Is this screen very stiff or somewhat pliable? Great job Chris!

Hi Toogie, no zipper in the top, but you could add one or even a pocket etc. The fabric is somewhat pliable just needs a bit of manouvering when sewing! Love Chris

At the hardware store it is called Pet Screen. It is vinyl and can be sewed, even embroidered on. Love it! Hugs.

Hi Suzanna, thanks for commenting. I buy insect screen from a store here in Newcatle called Bunnings. It's quite a strong mesh. As Mrs Kiki has said it can be embroidered on as well. Love Chris

Amazing what you do. Do you overlock the screen edges or put them in a French seam so they don't unravel or become sharp. Are any good at writing tutorials lol. Marian

These are fully bound Marian with bias binding. If you enlarge the picture you can see the red bias binding through the mesh. Love Chris
