Title: Vinyl Zombie Bag... Don't let it bite you..
Post by: doxieart on May 19, 2006 03:36:22 PM
I just got my sewing machine unpacked after a really rough move.

So this is the first thing I made for myself because I deserve something with a zombie on it.





Bag is 12 by 10 by 2... It's made from vinyl, lining fabric, d rings, snaps, a zipper, and nylon webbing. The red is clear vinyl which I colored red with a red sharpie. I made the pattern myself but it's just 2 pieces for the flap, 2 outter of vinyl and two inner of the lining fabric. then a strip that connects the sides.

Thanks for all the comments. I'm working on a tutorial on working with vinyl, I hope to have it up soon. I moved into a new place and I'm still unpacking. This was the first thing I was able to sit infront of my machine and make. It felt good, I missed my sewing machine.

I'm not normally into zombie stuff, but this is just AMAZING, I love the vaguely clueless look on the zombie's face ^_^
Oh, how I WISH I could find somewhere around here that sells vinyl.
I can't get over how fantastic your bag is. It looks so professional!

If you live in the US, you can buy vinyl online. I get mine from Hancock Fabric, they have an online store and locations. I'm in the process of cutting vinyl for the tutorial. So I'm hoping by Monday or Tuesday I will have it up.

im getting ready to make a bag like that......with the KILL HANNAH sign.....or logo w/e.......umm....im going to get the material from my dad.......(hes an upolsterer) and i well more than likely get to use their sewing machines to make it......which will make it sooo much easier

God that is AMAZING- both the design and the execution. It looks totally professional in the sewing but completely unique in the design. So many clever touches like coloring clear vinyl with a sharpie, that transparent blood is the greatest thing! That could be used for so many other projects and styles...Now I am getting an idea for a stained glass effect bag using that method. And I can't get over how perfect all the sewing around the letters is, do you glue the vinyl down before sewing to make it stay put?

That is ridiculously amazing. I know tons of people who would die (...become undead?) for it.  :D

I've just gotten really good at holding the vinyl in place while sewing it. When I work on larger projects I will use some drafting or painter's tape. I've tried glue in the past but it will show through the layers by leaving a bump where the glue is.

Oh my gosh, that's so cool! I'd be the one to ask you where you got it if I didn't know you made it, but it's too awesome to be mass-produced. You couldn't buy anything that great!

People have been asking me where I bought it from and are surprised to hear I made it. It makes me feel really good. =)

Thanks!

I'd certainly want to know where you got it if I'd seen it anywhere else. Great job. I <3 zombies.
