on the readymade website (www.readymademag.com), they are selling recycled billboard canvas, which i would love to work with - has anyone else here done anything with it, and what's it like to work with, and any ideas of something to do with it other than wallets and messenger bags?  or any ideas of where to get larger sheets of it (these are 4'x4')?

I got the canvas, and it's pretty easy to work with.  I don't have a machine, so I hand stitched a rockin' wallet.  The only problem I had was with some fraying in places (not the vinyl itself, but the ribs of thread that run through it).  It only happens when the cuts run across those ribs....I was afraid the material would get too bulky if I tried to hem it, but maybe I have no other choice.  Has anybody else had this problem?

I just got mine from readymade tonight and I love it... 4 by 4 might not seem like a lot but it is when you get it! I am so happy. It come with instructions on how to make wallets and bags and stuff.
