Has anybody done this tutorial w/ vinyl fabric? Any tips for making it spill-proof?

Sorry I haven't been on here in a while.   Shocked  I just looked through the thread and you all have done some awesome pouches/bags!!!

To answer craftsblogger's question, I've made plenty of these in fabric with a clear layer of vinyl over the top.  Here's a picture of one (slightly larger version of the original, but you get the idea):


I don't use interfacing when I use the vinyl as the vinyl is usually enough to keep the pouch's structure.  Also, when sewing with the vinyl, I treat the vinyl and outer fabric as one layer.  When top stitching either side of the zipper, I use tissue paper under my presser foot so the vinyl doesn't stick to the presser foot.

This is just what I was looking for! Pretty easy to follow and my practice one turned out pretty good. Love how easy it is to put the zipper in...I have been terrified of zippers for years and would avoid them at all costs. I'm hoping that this has helped me to put my big girl panties on and forge ahead!

On to making the real one now that I have some confidence! Thanks for the great tut!  Grin

Zippers scare the crap out of me, but this was so easy to make! I'm making a few as goody bags for my bridesmaids. Will post pics!

I like the shape of this bag. Thank you for the tutorial. Good instructions, especially on the template. I was hoping to make one this weekend, so I hope you're monitoring for questions. Your wings for the boxed bottom are shown being cut at 1 1/2" to achieve a 3" deep bottom. I don't understand how that provides seam allowances.  Shouldn't both edges of the boxed bottom be 1 1/2" + 1/4"  = 1 3/4"? After sewing 1/4" seams, the finished depth would be 3". Am I missing something? Maybe your finished depth is 2 1/2". Thank you.

It's difficult to explain, but when you take up the seam allowances in the side seams, you also 'add' to that measurement when you sew on an 'inside' corner.  The formula is that if you cut out a 1 inch corner, the final seam will also be 1 inch, except double that because of the other side.  For example, if you want a 2 inch seam on the bottom corners, cut out 1 inch squares at the bottom.  Try it for yourself with some scrap squares of fabric!

This is great! I have seen this before, and liked it, but never tried it. My niece would like a bag for her birthday in a steampunk style - I have never made one before, but this tutorial could help.  She wants a bag like this:



She said making it in fabric would be good, too. My question to you is - do you think this bag could be made with the kind of closure in the picture? I have never used that kind of closure, and am not sure how it works.  Any thoughts???

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

The style of the bag in your picture is a 'Doctor's Bag'.  Here is a link where you can purchase the hardware:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/127382858/14-inch-355cm-vintage-anti-bronze-doctor?ref=market

If you google 'Doctor's Bag Pattern' you will find some great patterns to make this style.  A free pattern (which is similar) is http://emmalinebags.blogspot.ca/2015/02/the-retreat-bag-free-sewing-tutorial.html.  I have done a video tutorial on how to add handles to this style of bag here:  http://youtu.be/F3SIdj-a3ds.  If the link doesn't work, just search 'Retreat Bag with Handles' on You Tube.

Hope this helps!

You completely and totally Rock, queenofdiy!!!  Thanks so much - LOVE one of the patterns I found googling the doctor's bag! I am going to make that one even if my niece doesn't want it. Smiley
