so i wanted to try my hand at sewing vinyl. it was kinda hard, seeing as i had to put a layer of tissue paper on both sides so it would feed smoothly. but all in all it looks just how i want it: sloppy and all over the place. yahooo

here are the pictures:

trendy kids on the front:

open it up a widdle bit:

the inside:

heres where all my hundos go:

for change, library cards, etc. when the wallet is all folded up the change doesnt slip out, which is a big thing for me since i really dont go for wallets that dont have a working change holder that actually keeps the change in:

its kinda messy and the stitching is all over the place, but it was my first one so...comments? criticism? advice?
thanks for looking

great attempt
my advice would be to have a background and then some focus pictures next time

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Cool!  I love sewing with vinyl!  I recommend a good quality Teflon foot for your machine to avoid the tissue issue.  The vinyl just slides through, giving you the control to make it look as neat or as random as you want it to look!

thanks for the advice!
ill have to look out for a teflon foot. ive heard of stickers that you can apply too?
miss-stitchdependent--im kinda happy with the design on this one. i was going for a throw-it-all-together mix of pictures of people. next time i might coordinate the background colors though. i was going to mount the people photos on pages of old old childrens encyclopedia pages but it was way too busy.

Nice job! It's very unique - and so funky! Good luck gathering the hundreds to fill that pocket. Wink

What a good idea! That would be a cool way to use those photo booth photos, too.
