ww Sandy's Packable Project Bags

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do not use a small stitch on this: you want the seams to stay strong, and too much perforation will weaken it. These can last for years. You need to already know how to bind and miter corners.

What you will need

  • clear vinyl (12 gauge is good)
  • bias binding
  • clips or clothespins

Q&A with Pam Sews

Karen Ruehling asked:
I like your project - can think of many things to use it for. What kind of plastic did you use? A certain gauge or what? Great job.
Pam Sews answered:
good question....had to dig out receipt! We used 12 gauge clear vinyl, ours was from JoAnns. Another member used a lighter gauge vinyl from WalMart which was clear with a white lace pattern on it. You have to stitch through 3 layers at the bottom part, plus binding, so this is as heavy as I would go. Don't forget to use a larger stitch (2.5 or so) so that you won't perforate it so much it tears. One we have has lasted for years...
