In keeping with my costume inspired bags, I present the Wonder Woman Blanche (bag pattern by Swoon). I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut marine vinyl for the stars the logo appliques. I then carefully top-stitched the appliques to the bag pieces before assembly. This was mostly done by hand turning the machine wheel, so as not to overshoot the corners or curves. Since I was making one of them, I decided to jump in head first and make TWO! Her shoulder strap is made to mimic the look of her boots, with the white stripe down the center. The inside has Wonder Woman printed fabric <3
It was 2 days of work, mostly spent on the careful applique detailing. Once that was done, assembly was easy enough. Since the bag is all vinyl, and this is a drop in lining, I opted to hand stitch in the lining, hiding the stitches in the very inside edge of the zipper tape. Trying to crunch up the bag to fit under my machine to machine stitch it in, was not an option for the marine vinyl. I didn't want to crease it all up or risk scratching up the vinyl in the process.

Outstanding piece; very professionally done!  I like the heavier emphasis on the red you went with and the Wonder Woman print fabric on the inside was a wonderful choice as well.

I love this! What cut settings do you use on your cameo & what type of blade (standard vs fabric)?

I put it on double cut, speed 1, thickness 33, blade at 10.It usually gets the job done on the vinyls from glitter mirror canvas (slightly thinner) to marine vinyl (maybe 2mm thick?). With the marine vinyl, I still have to sometimes use an exacto in the corners to release them and trim away stray knit threads from the back. I cut it with the vinyl side up. I found that when doing something like the WW logo, you need to release sections and space then farther apart in the software. If they are as close as they should be in the finalized design, it can sometimes drag the skinnier pieces of vinyl and muck up the whole design. You can't do really detailed things either.
