Vinyl Zipper Bag
I've wanted to try sewing with clear vinyl for a long time now, but never took the plunge and bought any of it. The more I look at zipper ideas on Pinterest, the more intriguing possibilities I stumble across.
I had enough advance notice before I lost my car last week to pick up a yard of the vinyl and decided to see if I could pull this project off without a teflon presser foot. It turns out that I could, since all of my sewing was through the fabric on the outside of the vinyl. The most fiddly part of the whole thing was making my own bias tape.
This is a mish-mash of a few different tutorials. I'm not happy with all of the little details, but I'll be giving it another try soon.
