    I’m impressed that you made your own panniers! Was it tough to sew through the vinyl?

      Oops! By mistake I market your comment as inappropriate instead of reply, I hope it doesn’t disappear! It wasn’t too hard, the original pattern called for multiple different pieces, so I decided to just make it continuous. I feel that it shapes up better that way. I had to pick up some heavier needles for my machine so I wouldn’t break them! Otherwise, it was a breeze!
