    Has anyone done a totebag or other item with the vinyl mesh screening?

    I am interested in this product, where to purchase, does it embroider well and what was your overall opinion of the product and how it worked for you. This product is also available in colors I think.

    I have made many tote /beach bags with it. I buy a roll of pet screen at the hardware store but you can get it in colors at many fabric stores and online. It's fine to sew with, I have done some emb. on it but not much. by choice not because i had trouble. I know there are patterns you can buy to use it but i just made mine up as i went along.
    One big bag i made for DD 8-9 years ago I know is still in use. As a teacher she has used it pretty hard too, carrying books etc. in it.

    The bags I made have been wearing like iron. It embroidered really well. I never hoop anything, but I had to hoop this. I used a heavy black tear away stablizer and black bobbin thread. Worked great. If you want black, just go to your local home center and get a roll of pet screen. colors available here:

    I have made a few tote bags and have embroidered on them with no problems.

    I have used it for project bags and found it very easy to work with. I even put a zipper in them.

    I was given one as a gift many years ago...not at all worn out looking. I keep wanting to make some myself, but haven't yet.

    I used it to make toy bags for the grands, worked well. Put their names on them so no arguing. Lots of colors available.
