girlthursday -- Actually, the vinyl isn't much trouble, but I do have to leave a substatial gap in the lining to get the strap out without a problem.  The only slight difficulty is getting all the corners completely "turned out" -- if that makes any sense.  I use the eraser end of a pencil to poke the corners and get a nice sharp shape. 

And I've seen three different "thicknesses" of vinyl.  One is pretty thick, but pretty sponge-y and soft.  One is transparent and super thin.  And the last one is thin but has an annoying layer of "fur" or something on the back.  I've had less success with the latter two. 

donhae -- awesome place to find anything and everything, isn't it?  I'm sure you'll come across something spectacular.  Let me know if you find a place that offers a gold vinyl with glitter sparkles!

here's a closeup of that butterfly. Really easy to make.

I used that solvy plastic stuff, drew on an outline of a butterfly, then filled it in with machine stitching. thanks!

edamame: I'd love to know more about this "solvy plastic stuff". . . What is it? 
Your butterfly is kick ass!  I know I am totally NOT capable of that kind of detail work with a machine.  I'm just now learning how to control the machine . . . a LITTLE bit. . .

Awesome job!

Oh my gosh, your tutorial is amazing.  I also saw dyabolica's tutorial, which was also really good!  But I really liked how you turned the corners of your fabric so as to better understand the positions of the right and wrong sides.  I've been making my own lined zippered pouches, but your method is so much easier I think!  This is a pouch I made before I read your tutorial, which I kinda labored with. 
But now it'll be soooo much easier to line the next purse I make, thanks to your great instructions!

I'm so lucky!!  I got the grass and butterfly pouch in the swap Grin!!  Edamame, I had no idea that you made the butterfly with your machine.  I thought it was a store bought applique.  I'm even more impressed!  And I would've been happy with any of the pouches you made, they're all so nice!  And yeah, what is this "solvy plastic stuff"??

Autywon, thank you so much for the compliment!  I go a little crazy with the buttons and lace, but it makes me happy.   Smiley  I just hope my next one will be 1/8th as good as the ones posted by everyone else.  Seeing everyone's work is so inspiring!  You guys make me want to ditch my classes and sew all day long!
