a pencil case from Picklepie designs. I enlarged it just enough to hold pencils & used marine vinyl to make the case. My ribbon is wider then the design called for But I decide to try ith zips & I had to rip apart the stitches because they were to close to the zipper to unzip it. I think next time I will do it with fabric it would be easier to flip

Great job, Loralye! I have this design and only used iron on vinyl over fabric for the lining. Next time I make it, I'll have to try your idea and use vinyl for the purse instead Hugs* Deb

Children love what is made for them and they don't look for flaws. Love the idea of using vinyl and the ribbon with the monogram is a neat touch.

Thanks Carolyn, I dropped it off & he really liked it so that is the most important thing & not the flaws. Kids surprise me @ how thrilled they are with the simplest things. ~hugs!~

I enlarged a ith design just a plain design recently and also had trouble in the zip area. In my case it didn't catch the zip in one place it stitched too close to the outside edge. I decided it must be like lace don't try to change it
Like your idea though.

not all zippers are created equal either, I have some really skinny ones and they don't line up right when using them in the hoop. Even the designs can make a difference
