very nice!!! I would love to do my own bag. What kind of machine needle did you use? a leather needle?

No I used a regular needle 90/14 and there is interfacing in-between that helped feed through the machine. But if you have never sewn PVC before you can use tape on the bottom of the foot or a teflon foot. This fabric is actually pretty thin, I made it heavier by using interfacing.

oh ok!!! I never thought to put tape on the bottom of the foot, that's clever!!! Thanks for the tips. No I'd never sew heavy or thick fabric, I'm still a beginner.
