Default quick sewing questions

http://www.savingbymaking.com/2013/0...ary-books-bag/

This calls for canvas - would decorator fabric work? (on sale at Joann's this week) If so, what size sewing machine needle do I need for that?

It would work, yes. You'll need an 11 or 14 needle.

Home Dec fabrics usually work really nicely.

If you use European (Schmetz) needles you'll need a size 90. (It could be labeled "jeans" - 80 is all-purpose, 70 is for fine fabrics, 90 is for heavier fabrics.)

Let us know how it turns out!
