I love this wallet! You're so talented!

Aww thanks.

I do like making my own patterns. It's like doing a puzzle in reverse. You start with a drawing of what you want to do and from there you need to figure out where to put the pieces to make it look like the drawing.

scissors but I get them sharpened often.

Your wallet is too cute!  Where did you get the materials from??? It really makes the wallet. Cheers to you!

I buy mine wholesale by the bolt but places like Hancock Fabric carries it.

NINJAAAAAAAA! they are brilliant!

is vinyl hard to sew?

Thanks!

It has a level if difficulty to it, not something I would recommend for a beginner to start with. You should also make sure you have a machine that can handle it or you could burn out the motor after a few projects.

Clean office leads to productivity. =) Of course now it's messy again.













Glitter vinyl was purchased wholesale but you can get it at places like Hancock Fabric or Fabric.com

I use a teflon foot to make the vinyl glide under the foot better but you can use tissue paper.

I know. I got that set of cutting blades, too! I just sort of stumbled upon the idea and it worked so great! I had to use it. I'm glad I'm not the only one! =0)


My hand was so sore though after I was done. I need one of those laser cutters but I don't have 10,000 dollars laying around nor do I have the room for it. Maybe someday. =)

tee hee, stalkers. If you ever see me out and about, you'll know it's me with a glitter vinyl bag with a skull and cross bones on it, feel free to say hi. Or follow me around it's all good. =)

Stuff looks awesome =)

I spent a few days making sparkle vinyl rick rack, it's awesome stuff. I found 4 different styles of rotary cutters and went to town.

Thanks everyone, I'm working on a whole bunch more. I love working in vinyl.

I LOVE this!!!  Where did you get your vinyl?  I don't think I've ever seen glitter.  :3

I no longer buy mine in retail stores I get it by the bolt, 15 yards at a time. You can get it at Hancock Fabric, or fabric.com

be sure that where ever you get it that they don't fold it, the creases won't come out. It's a bummer.
