Grip Bag - Vinyl.

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Matching the seams up at the bag corners is the most difficult. Selling my first bag (the Orange one) as an addition to the clients custom interior finish on their 2002 Marcos Mantis GTS was indeed a proud moment - seeing the car and the bag at the UK NEC Classic Car Show blew me away! Getting another order on top from another client on the back of the appearance at the show was the icing on the cake What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be put off by working with heavier materials. If you can get a used heavy duty or industrial machine then it will pay off in no time at all.

What you will need

  • Vinyl applique in multiple layers with blue lining and interior pocket.
