I use the term "oilcloth" as a catchall term.  The fabric pictured is actually laminated fabric but is generally found near the oilcloth section.  Oilcloth is just fabric covered with a slick petrol based or platic top.  Really popular in the 50's and used for tablecloths.   I found it at a local fabric store here.  I have seen the same stuff online.  Search for laminated fabric or just browse oilcloth sections.  It's not hard to work with at all.  I bought a teflon foot for my machine just incase but I haven't had to use it.

So after I made my first two oilcloth aprons for a friend who's a hairdresser, I got an order for another one from one of the other stylists in her salon.  She picked out the fabric and so this is what I came up with.  Critiques and comments are welcome.

I love these so much words cannot even describe it.  I even had to show my husband and he normally looks at me with complete indifference when I try to show him something on craftster but these he actually liked.

Great bag, and extra kudos for getting the wales of the courderoy going in the same direction!   Grin

I stay away from directional fabric because I will ALWAYS get the stripes/pattern going every which way. It was the first thing I noticed on your bag. I.E., I'm jealous of your superior style skill ...   Wink

Thank you.  It was completely by chance.

I mean, like actual acrylic PAINT... has anyone ever tried that?
Or sharpies?
Or... ?

I have never tried actually coloring or painting the flower before I resin it.  I can't imagine using acrylic to do it because it is so opaque and think that I would be afraid of the flower looking fake.  I may try sharpies or some other clearish dye or paint.

Here's a small standard messenger bag I made for a friend.  No pattern, just the dimensions and fabric that she wanted.  I have never done a button hole before so that was a challenge.  It seems as tough each time I make a purse I find something else that "I should do differently next time".  Let me know what you think.

Very pretty!  I am facinated by the teal coloured teardrop in the last pic - what is inside of it?

Do you think spraying the flowers with an acrylic sealer before putting them in resin would help keep the colour?

It is actually a very tiny flower from my yard, it started off purple but is now whitish/clear.  They remind me of blue belles but more tubular and bell shaped than the round real blue belles.  I have tried spraying with clear acrylic sealer befor e and that didn't work too well, could have been user fault though ;-)

  How did you color them? 

I used acrylic paint for the solid backgrounds mixed in with the resin and catalyst, it doesn't fully break apart for me when I mix it with the resin so it leaves an almost stone like like to it.  For the teal teardrop one I used Ranger's inkers in a bottle (near the scrapbooking and stamping stuff in craft stores), I just dropped it directly onto the just poured wet resin while in the mold.  I'm lazy and I don't feel like making a new colored batch of resin for each item I do especially when I want different colors for each one.  Hope that helps

Here's my latest resin batch.  Still have to clean up the edges and figure out mounting.  Experimented with flowers I found in my yard.  *NOTE: Resin drains color from flowers whether or not you put them in fresh or dried with silicone.  The skull on blue was inspired by a ring I saw in Maxim on Avril Lavigne (not a big fan of her but I like her style). http://img.funtasticus.org/2007/jan8/avril2128/avril001.jpg
Tell me what you think.
