i finally made something with vinyl again! i'm so happy, i've been sorely neglecting vinyl lately. damn altered art and papercrafts! Wink

the fabulous vanillaxlight has been here visiting me, so instead of making something and mailing it to her, i made her a carry-on bag to take home with her! (which is good, cause she bought way too much stuff, and needed the extra packing capacity! Grin)


it's very big... about 20" wide, 15" tall, and about 7" deep. (we checked the airline requirements first!)

the straps have nylon strapping inside them, to give them strength.

the back, with a little leaf on the corner of the pocket. the pocket snaps shut with heavy duty snaps, so it doesn't gape.


pockets! i didn't have time to line it, but i wanted to have interior pockets, so i sewed them on behind the exterior pocket to hide the seams - i feel so sneaky! Wink you can see the backs of the snaps above them.

detail shot, to show the green topstitching.

without flash, more accurate colours.

with flash, to see the shimmer of the green vinyl. i love this vinyl, it's so fabulous, and it looks so sharp with the chocolatey brown!

she LOVES it, and i'm really happy with it too! if i'd had more time, i think i'd have used the green to pipe the edges, like i did with my own cherry carryon, but oh well!   


by the way, it's really exciting to be able to post pics right away, instead of having to wait until the recipient has received! Grin

Nummm!  It's so beautiful!

The colors are divine together and the little touches like the leaves and stitching are just the best.

This is seriously the coolest! I love the colors and the inside pockets are awesome and the appliques are beautifully shaped. You are so sneaky and crafty with hiding the inside pocket seams Cheesy

Great job, I would like to try sewing with vinyl and this is just the motivation I needed  Grin

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

thanks everyone! i'm really happy with it - i just wish it had photographed better! it's a very floppy bag, to better fit in the overhead compartment and such, and it was hard to stuff it evenly enough to show the shape accurately. i'm glad you all like it even though it loks a little wonky (it's not in real life!)!

i love details.... the little leaf on the back was my idea, after i had vanillaxlight lay out the leaves on the front how she liked - i just wanted something to tie the front and back together!


dinasaurus meg, go for it! i adore vinyl, it's so fun to work with! post what you make, i'd love to see!

I'm horribly jealous that she got to see the master crafting in person!
