Andrea’s TOP 5 TIPS for sewing a clear vinyl stadium bag:

#1 work with a high quality paper backed vinyl such as the Annies:

#2 swap the contrasting solid base for clear vinyl and you will be much happier with the corners and finished look

#3 add a removable base crafted from your contrasting print/solid to achieve the same look as the original Sallie Tomato bag

#4 use a light weight non fraying vinyl for your contrasting print / solid such as the faux leather ribbon sold at Hobby Lobby—7-1-2/p/80950106?queryId=8f3bd78851514c7259e9def36d95538f

#5 pay special attention to the top zipper instructions and be certain to leave the 3/4″ and 1″ gaps at the end as illustrated in the free PDF and you will achieve a perfect fit
