How to sew a clear vinyl bag








Here are some videos to get you making clear bags with success.

These are MEGA EASY to sew. Seriously.

Get the right tools for the job and YOU can do ANYTHING!



I always advise using a teflon (non-stick) foot when sewing vinyl.

I use a regular size 80 needle.

NEVER press a hot iron onto vinyl, it will melt.

Some people like to put wax paper underneath the vinyl, to slide along the machine bed - but I've never needed to do that. I don't find it's *that* sticky.


I use a hair dryer when turning my vinyl projects right sides out.












The leather straps I carry in the shop are easily sewn. I don't change my needle, foot, or anything when sewing them onto bags. If you choose, you can use rivets or hardware, but it's not necessary.












Glitter vinyl is available in clear, black. purple, pink, and teal green HERE in my shop.

You can use 10 or 12 gauge for these bags.




For another fun project try this Little Duffle (pattern by Karen West). Full video walk through on You Tube!











HAPPY MAKING!
