Make Your Own…

My vinyl-obsession started about 6 months ago, when I first started experimenting with the material. I bought some clear vinyl and started cutting and sewing. I was so surprised that it was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. There is no seam finish needed to be done, and it worked fine with a regular machine needle. So I started off figuring out how I would cut out the pieces to make the assembling as easy as possible.

  3. Sew the 4 side seams on the bag
  4. Use glue to attach the two straps on the bag
  5. Cut small rectangles of the left over vinyl, and use the glue to attach the gold chain as well as the buckles/snaps.
