DIY projects using vinyl

Vinyl is fun—you gotta love edges that don't fray! I'm pondering a couple projects, and in the meantime Googled to see what other people have been up to. If you're into synthetics, check out these tutorials explaining how to make your own vinyl goodies.

I'm not much for vinyl, but I do have a fair bit of leather left from another project. Thanks for posting!

This is so timely - I just picked up Fabric by fabric one yard wonders by Rebecca Yaker and my favorite project is the vinyl bag! You should check it out (have have your mum make it for you...)

Grandma G said...

But Grandma G, you're such a good seamstress! Not that I'm much with a sewing machine, but it sure looks like a lot less work than that Amy Butler bag you made a while back...

Grandma G said...

Well, thank you, Blue! And ANYTHING would be less work than that Weekender bag! :) But shhhh... Jess is "pondering" projects for herself (I assume!), so let's see what she comes up with! ;)

Very cool. My favorite has to be the records as a cookie holder (I think that's what is called). :)
