Experimenting with Vynil

I often use my charlie bag as a shopping bag. Measuring 50x60 cm (incld. handle) the bag is big (on petite me, it's huge!) and roomy, perfect to keep all those groceries. Yet since I made it from cotton fabric it's not very stain resistant, not to mention it's not waterproof - which often needed in a good shopping bag.

So when I came across this blue vynil with pretty floral motives, I knew what to do with it rightaway.





....and here it is, a shopping bag with vynil lining inside, very durable and easy to clean (just wipe with damp cloth). You can reverse the bag and put the vynil part putside too, perfect for those rainy days :D

I use tenun troso in bright green color for the other side of the bag, embellished with a bird applique which I colored with fabric paint.

Very experimental, yet I'm pleased with the outcome :)

Oh and yes, it's for sale ;)
