Wow! Great job. The crisp white really sets off the print. The only cutouts I have tried are squares. I am really instiped now to try something more complex. Beatiful bag.

For the front, did you use a teflon foot or anything when sewing the vinyl?

SewPixie,

I don't have a teflon foot. That's one of the reasons I've had this vinyl sitting unused for so long.  I used a walking foot instead, which I almost always use when sewing 2 different types of fabric together.  Anytime I ran into the situation of the right side of the vinyl (i.e the sticky side) being in contact with the machine, I sewed directly over a sheet of paper, then ripped off the sheet afterwards.  That seems to work just fine!

my mouth seriously fell open when that picture loaded. it is BEAUTIFUL.  I've had a similar idea to do a bag with a cutout (i was going to try to do a different color underneath) but judging from my past attempts to use vinyl, what i come up with will be nowhere near as goergous as this.

i am highly impressed!!

i have one more question - the strap is perfect - how did you do it? I take it that you did not do a tube?

tute, perhaps?
