I am looking to make some organizers for my EDC bag. I am very interested in sewing cordura, but do not have a sewing machine yet. In the meantime I would like to know what kind of organizers I can hand-sew for organization in my EDC bag. I've been considering neoprene as it's so soft but I can't find where you would purchase moderate amounts of it. Does anyone know a good material that's widely available for hand sewing? Also, does anyone know what to look for in used sewing machines? I'd like to look at some of the pre-50's era treadle machines for their ability to handle tougher fabrics (from the DIYTactical forum how-to). Are there good brands of machine to handle cordura? I wasn't able to find much information about hand sewing the kind of things I'm interested in. Most of my interests involve cordura and that seems to live in the sole domain of machines. I know this is a hodgepodge of questions but I'm just getting into this a bit unsure of where to start.
