My New "Rain" Handbag and Accuquilt Giveaway

Okay, so I have a raincoat, rain boots, but no rain handbag...so guess what I did?  I made one.  It is the first time that I have ever worked with vinyl (iron-on) sheeting, so this was a new experience.  I took pictures along the way, so if anyone is interested in making a waterproof bag, let me know.  I would love to share my insight and tips.  After all, that's what blogging is all about, right?  I wish I could avoid the glare, I will have to learn how to do this, but until then, this is the best picture I could come up with.














On another note, Accuquilt is having a giveaway, so go on over to their Facebook page to enter.

  1. So clever... and what a good idea..... I am hoping we will have a good rainy season so maybe you do need to tell us all your tips... I found vinyl sticks so much so would love to know how you deal with that.... (I used talcum powder ... messy)... and leaves a white residue... not good
