I am completely terrified of vinyl, yet I love it so. What kind of needle are you sewing with? I'm about to jump into making some simple tote bags and want to get off to a good start.

i use a leather/vinyl needle, they come in sets of 3, varying sizes, and i switch between the sizes depending on how many layers i'm sewing. i also sew with a fairly small stitch length, i think it looks way better, and it's also sturdier.

the most important thing is a teflon foot, in my opinion, i can't live without mine. they cost about $10, and they're a lifesaver when sewing with vinyl! i bought mine from agreatnotion. if you can't get one, you can also buy teflon tape at home depot for a buck or less, it's sold for plumbing, and then glue it on to a foot you already have, but i doubt it will hold up as well over time.

good luck with your bags! make sure you post them!

Teflon foot? That's to keep it slick running through your machine and not sticky? I'm more scared now!....Still not ready for vinyl. I will post them when I get up the nerve to try it.

i wish i could find this same vinyl in other colours - it totally looks metallic! i love it so much!

Have you looked over at http://distinctivefabric.com/  ? They have a selection of vinyl, and will send you ten 3"x5" swatches free.
