Hi everyone,

I have just managed to sort out my password problems!

Firstly I had the same problem this evening but with sewing group so I've just downloaded GBSB to watch now Shetland is recorded ready for tomorrow.

Secondly I only received my magazine on Saturday Valerie so maybe yours is with you now.

Thirdly I have enjoyed seeing all the finished works and loved the glorious colours.

Hopefully my password won't go AWOL again!

Curious question. Is there a firm bag wadding readily available in UK quilting shops? We have a product called Matilda's own. It's reasonably priced and easy to work with

I have Used the foam wadding but find it's quite expensive.

Good evening Brenda..... I know what you mean about the cost of that wadding! But it is lovely to work with! I have used a bonded curtain lining...much cheaper...really firm...and works well in bags! I used to buy it from the market stall.. but they have closed and I have some in stock..what I am going to do when I have used it all!! Rx

I used a foam product called Bosal In R Form for bagmaking, which gives a nice shape to bags but is VERY expensive for the amount you get. The one I bought was fusible on one side, but I found that my outer fabric looked wrinkly when it was ironed on. A much cheaper alternative is Car Headliner fabric, available on an auction site - it is used to line the inside of the roof of cars. It is a thin foam (3-4 mm) with a thin layer of fabric to hold it together - it is not fusible, but you can use a temporary spray adhesive if required.

Thank you Rosemary & Marian for your suggestions,

I think we all explore outside the square when it comes to saving money!

Just working on a new bag design and try to use as many alternative products as possible.
