.....with VINYL
I've been dying to sew up something with some vinyl.  I figure I'd experiment with using the cheaper stuff before cutting into real leather! :)  My trusty old singer plowed right through this stuff with no problem at all.  Gotta LOVE those old machines!!!  Sometimes I was sewing through 6 layers of vinyl plus 4 layers of fabric!!!!  These machines were built to last.
I decided to add a zippered pocket to the back.  It's not perfect, but not bad for the first time making one with such a tough fabric!
...inside the zippered pocket.
Only a sewing gal would appreciate this gorgeous print!  I've used this same fabric to cover my sewing machine stool.  Can't wait to use this new clutch, but it disappeared!!!  I asked hubby last night if he took off with it and he looked at me like I was crazy!!!  Don't know WHY I asked himthat.  Sometimes I ask questions that totally do NOT make sense.  The more likely culprit is my daughter.  It's probably hanging up in her room with her collection of purses!  Off to go find my purse!!
