this is a small tut about how i made it:

clear pvc x 2 for every piece of poster plus 2 for the bottom
ribbon for the top
4 d - hooks

1. cut out back/front/ and both sides of the poster you want to cut...
2. cut the same plus bottom pieces in clear pvc with an 1cm seam allowance more than the poster pieces
3. sandwich the poster pieces in between the two pieces of clear pvc
4. sew into a tote bag shape (this is where i pulled it inside out and that's why it ripped)
5. sew ribbon around the top
6. cut 4 same sized webbing i did about 15cm, burn the edges so it doesn't fray
7. pull one of the d- hooks onto one of the pieces of webbing and fold it in half
8. sew onto the side pieces of the bag

and that's the main bag done ... Grin

the handles are 2 x small pieces of poster
pvc clear  x 2
webbing ( 4 x 25cm )

1. cut the same size pieces of poster
2. cut clear pvc same size as poster pieces but with 1 cm of seam allowance
3. put the poster onto the pvc and fold in half and sew along the long side
4. fold one of the ends of webbing pieces and put inside the pvc and poster piece, sew along the short side and cut excess
5. do this again for the other three pieces of webbing
6. put through d - hooks and sew where they look suitable too (box sew will make it stronger)

and there's your poster bag  Grin Cheesy Grin hope you enjoy

if this isn't clear i do apologies this is my first written tutiorial  Huh
