I've been a long-time lurker of the forums but I've finally decided to get over my forum-posting phobia and give it a go!
I saw some purses using sparkle vinyl at a local shop but none of them were made with that classic, red diner booth vinyl so I decided to make my own! And I decided to go ahead and take it further and make it reminiscent of an actual diner booth while I was at it! So, here's the result:
and here's the Route 66 interior
I had no idea how to actually construct one of these so I bought a couple of old vintage purses at a flea market to use as a pattern. (I used the brown one)
I had to scrape all the material off the frame (not recommended)
Here's the purse with it's new cover (I used the cardboard and padding from the old purse)
The white part is made of just some scrap white fabric I had lying around because I was too impatient to wait for white vinyl
Can't forget its little feet!
And then add a few rhinestone and rivets and a chain for a handle and viola! oooooo, glitter... *drool*
It was definitely a long, difficult process, but at least I'll know what to do (or at least what not to do) next time
I hope you all liked it! Thanks for looking!
