Here's a list of some easier projects using the stiffer vinyls in the shop - they are still easy to sew but they have more structure than the Soft Vinyl and the Moonglow Vinyls.
Scrap packs are a great way to explore sewing with vinyl. Most of the below tutorials can be made with pieces from my famous scrap packs. 😄
6. Keep Case
9. Betty Bow Pouch pattern (for the live demo I used fabric, but the original design was intentionally written for stiff vinyl).
The stiffer vinyls also make great contrast bottoms for the Santorini Tote, the Easy Zipper Cases pattern, and the Coffee House Bag front flap. I personally love a regular or large size Santorini Tote made in Croc vinyl like the peach colored one below! I interface it with foam to have even more structure.
If you're questioning interfacing and vinyl I have a talk here.
If you'd like to see the SOFT vinyl and how it behaves like fabric, here is a video.
Browse my live videos on YouTube for past recordings of vinyl topics, some really pack a lot of info in, and I answer questions as they arise.
The most important thing is to explore and experiment. You don't need anyone's permission to play around with materials and techniques.
Just DO it! 😄
**The vinyl in my shop is excellent for Embroidery in the Hoop projects; a scrap pack is a good start for experimenting with the different textures available.
I made a skeleton necklace here with Black Stardust. You can see me floating the vinyl on top of felt. If you're looking for fun embroidery in the hoop patterns, try Off with Their Threads and The Nosy Pepper. 😄
