and then before too long I had this:
the bottom of the bag is even vinyl:
The only real issue I had was when I was sewing the handles, and had two vinyl against both the sewing foot and the feed dogs...it got a bit sticky. But it all worked out! I also used Flex Foam for the first time on this bag, and wow...love it! And now I'm off to either sew another Lola...or move onto a different bag...decisions decisions!
