Those bags are so cute! I've been eyeing this great retro striped wrapping paper for a while --- if it were fabric, I'd have been wearing it by now! --- and wondering what to do with it. I'm inspired. Now to find out if I can get iron-on vinyl anywhere withing public-transit distance... If not, I wonder if using mac-tac or other self-adhesive clear plastic on the front and back would be strong enough? I mean, I'm not that likely to use a bag like this for more than a season (not on a regular basis, anyway), so it doesn't have to be all that durable, as long as my wallet and lip balm don't end up on the floor the first time I carry it! And mac-tac's so cheap, if it works, I'll probably be visiting my local stationer's shop and picking out all kinds of great papers to make into bag after bag after bag...

Any thoughts, anyone?

I love love love the bags!!!  Shocked

I went out today on a mission to find iron-on vinyl and basically got laughed at by every salesperson I met.  Undecided

Seems like Toronto's a pretty dry place for iron-on vinyl which is really a shame because it looks SOOOO good. I guess I'll just have to use the regular stuff.  Cry

I've been to all my fabric stores and they've all turned me away empty handed. Anyone know of any on-line sources?

I went to the fabric store near me, and all they have in stock is matte iron-on vinyl.  Would the matte type look okay over pictures, or would it make it blurry?  I was hoping to get lustre, but i need it to be done soon for a gift and i don't want to order it online.

The matte works just fine and looks every bit as lovely, just not as shiny Smiley

That is the coolest bag ever.  I'd love to make one with the calendar pages from my great danes calendar.

Faith:  I've been thinking about making one of these but I've gotten involved with cigar box purses at the moment.  My suggestion is instead of using fish tank tubing (which is little too limp) use the tubing in the plumbing section of your local hardware stores (i.e., Home Depot, Lowe's etc.).  It's sturdy, bendable and pretty cheap.  I made a tote a while back and used the iron vinyl on my bag and used the plumbing tubing as handles.  What's neat is the whole bag can be wiped down for cleaning.  I've also seen people thread decorative ribbon and colored piping through the tubing.  The possibilities are endless.  Flo-E

Ok, now I know what I am going to do with my beat up 1976 Rolling Stone Mag with the Eagles on the Cover.  It's kind of oversized though... maybe I'll use it for a diaper bag!
