Marissa here from Rae Gun Ramblingsand I’m excited to show off my new bag! I am the mom of a busy little boy and I’ve been wanting a new tote but I had a few conditions. It needed to be wipeable so that when I put it on the floor I could easy clean it if needed and didn’t have to worry about wet weird stuff seeping in and I wanted it to be tote like but with the option to be closed.
I LOOOOVE the result. I fell in love with the Greatest Adventure line when I first saw it and I think it makes just the perfect every day tote for this boy mama. In order to meet my wipeable condition I just covered the bottom part of my bag in every day clear vinyl. This is a fabulous way to turn any of your favorite fabrics into something like a functional laminate!
I made a little video to share my top tricks for sewing with vinyl. Just by using some simple household items you can make sewing with vinyl a breeze and turn any fabric you like into a more wipeable water resistant project!
And if you want to make your own vinyl bottom market bag I’ve got all the measurements and the step by step vinyl bottom market bag tutorial here.
