Last week I  got this jacket at the thrift store for $3.

It's actually pretty cute as a jacket, but it's too small for me so I bought it just for the fabric. It's a fake-snake vinyl with a metallic silvery sheen. I never see cool fabric like this in the fabric store so I'm always on the lookout for cheap clothing I can cut up.
Anyway I knew I could probably make at least 4 things out of it. This is the first one, a wristlet made from just one sleeve and part of the belt for the strap.

I decorated it with a patch of black vinyl and a star of glitter naugahyde, and some metal studs.


The lining is a steel-grey irridescent nylon and there's a zipper pocket inside


I really love this fabric and I think my next project will be a passport case for my vacation next month. I can make that from the other sleeve.

 Roll Eyes   Was the fabric hard/easy to work with?  I love thrift store re-do's!!  The ultimate in re-use/reduce/recycle.

It was pretty easy to work with, it's thin so it doesn't need an industrial machine like upholstery-grade vinyl. And it's got a dry, matte finish so the presser foot doesn't stick like it would on glossy vinyl. I also have a roller foot and a teflon foot, they are really useful for working with vinyls.
