    I made something that required a small bit of clear vinyl. In order to be thrifty (aka cheap), I purchased a clear shower curtain liner for less than $3. It's huge and worked beautifully.

    Shower curtain! Perfect idea!! Why didn't I think of that?

    Got our clear vinyl at Joann's and also at Walmart. You want the thicker vinly not the real thin type. We just sewed our trims to it without any special feet. Worked great.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I use the Plastic covers from upholstry sample books. There is free vinyl in a lot of things if you just look for it.

    I purchased my vinyl at JoAnn's ... and was quite frustrated using it. It seems to slip and slide all over everywhere. Now, that I have finished my project I discovered you can use a special foot, telfon foot that will work really great with the vinyl. I had to do another project for my hubby and I purchased the foot and it make a 100% difference. However I was using it for a much larger project, so maybe using it in smaller pieces works easier. Not sure. Here is a pic of what I used it for.

    I bought mine at Tuesday Mornings about 2 years ago. Was a great price.
