WIP Wednesday #83: Soft Vinyl Fabric- What can you do with it?

In this WIP Wednesday episode Vanessa is telling you all about the latest addition to the online shop: Sew Hungry Hippie’s Soft Vinyl! We carry this buttery soft fabric in 10+ color ways and have sold out several times already. So, if you see something you like, order it while you can here: https://craftygemini.com/product-category/fabric/

This soft vinyl is heavier than quilting cotton but softer and lighter than cork fabric. It’s amazing to work with and can be fused to different interfacings or quilted to make fun bag projects.

Vanessa is answering pre-submitted questions. If you’d like to submit a sewing/quilting question for Vanessa to answer on a future WIP Wednesday episode please use this form: https://forms.gle/D2qMCVJxfAgJHvWb7
