Twilight Tote

Well I finally finished the Twilight Tote for my granddaughter. I bought a Twilight calendar and cut out the pictures. I then sandwiched them between heavy clear vinyl I bought at Walmart. Sewed them up like you would a juice pouch purse. I then added a large grommet to either side and threaded strapping into the grommets. I did made a big mistake, if you look at the side of the first picture you will see how the vinyl slid as I was sewing it together. If you have ever worked with vinyl you know how unforging it can be. Once sewn you can not pick the stitches out and resew them. and you have to use a vinyl foot or a walking foot to get the vinyl to slide through.
Edward is on one side, Bella is on the other. The sides have all the characters and the inside is Edward and Jacob.
Even with the mistakes I hope she likes it.
I did find several Twilight purses on the web but didn't want to pay their prices.
I am thinkiing of making a matching change purse to go with it... we'll see.
