This is amazing! Pray tell, where can you get adhesive vinyl??

I just went to a craft store. Not sure what they have in your area, but I went to a DeSerres down the street from where I work. Some craft stores have it and some do not. It might depend on the neighbourhood you're in as well. I've gone to two locations of the same craft store and one had the vinyl and one did not. So you'll just have to look around.

Also, just an FYI, it comes on a roll and you just tell them how many feet you want. The basic colours (black/white/clear) are about $2.50 CAN/foot, sometimes the colours and metallics can run more expensive.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks to all for the kind words! I'm just as impressed with how this turned out. I plan on making many more and I'm sure i'll be posting the pics on here for all to see. Smiley

I make cool stuff and do cool things, too bad I'm not cool...

That is SO COOL!  Love the corset and those are two of my favorite comics!

That is too cool. I have that pattern as well, never used it for fear of screwing up. I always thought they were a little crazy just using the magazine, but your explanation on the vinyl helped a lot.

Great job hun!

This is fantastic. I think we'll all miss Michael Turner for a long time to come.

I am always open to personal swaps...I'm always on the lookout for new bags, shawls, punk/steampunk accessories, Altoids tins, etc. As a professional illustrator/fine artist, I can offer something crafty, or something more artsy. Let's talk!

I agree, I'm glad I got to meet him.  He was such a nice guy and VERY talented!

fury that brings upon mortals the greatest evils." - Euripides

test run one of using "fabric" made from a comic book!  The second one turned out better, cause I knew what I had in mind before I started sewing.  No pics of attempt number 2 as of yet though.  I call it the Comic Clutch.  This is the 1st try, the second one is actually lined and has a Velcro fastener.


I am learning to sew and figure skate, I've never felt more manly in my life!
