i actually made these two ages ago, but i'm still quite proud of them.

#1 - black vinyl body, white vinyl blossom, raspberry naugahyde wrist strap, and light pink zipper
#2 - black vinyl body, green polyvinylchroride blossoms and wrist strap, lime green stitching, and yellow zipper!








i've only been sewing off and on for maybe two years, i have to be in the mood. but yeah, what do you think?

 Huh I've been wondering about the backing on vinyl, too. I want to make straps and corners for my bags using vinyl, but the backing on upholstery vinyl makes it too thick to work with easily - esp. when folding in the edges on straps. Any advice?

And, BTW, your clutches are beautiful! I recently bought a roller foot for my machine (Kenmore Undecided) to use with sewing vinyl. Anyone have any tips?

They're gorgeous.  I especially love the stitching detail on the second one.

Me too!  I've never  sewn vinyl before, and I just bought some.  I'm a little intimidated.  Do you need a special needle?

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

zaum - after i cut out the shape, i get a pair of little, sharp scissors and cut that junk off at an angle. by angle, i mean that closest to the cutout i cut nearest, but allow the fabric further away fro the cut out to be trimmed a bit. it can be time consuming, but totally worth it!

NessaGurl - nope, no lining on these because they were my first, but the ones in the future will be lined (gotta use those impulse-buy-fat-quarters for something, right?)

SweetTomato - my only suggestion would be to try polyvinylchroride instead of vinyl. PVC is just as sturdy, but also has more color options (depending on where you shop) and is typically more thin and flexable.

GhostAcademy - bigger needles are suggested (like for denim), but unlike denim, a hole in vinyl is a hole forever, so i just carefully use an all purpose needle and foot. to avoid the foot from sticking, i use a bright light, and cover the vinyl with tissue paper. when i'm finished (for example: the decorative stitching on #2) i tear the tissue away.
