Sewing Tutorial: DIY Vinyl Bag with Dritz Striped Belting

February 4, 2019

 

It’s a clear winner.

Check out this sporty tote that fashion blogger, Laura, from Trash To Couture made using our new Dritz striped belting. We’re digging this trend in bag making, because using clear vinyl makes it so much easier to find must-have items like your cell phone and keys. The black vinyl base gives it a really upscale look and the Dritz plastic snap closure ensures items stay put inside.
