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.

Good morning everyone....is anyone up for a challenge?

Margaret/Winnie sent me a link the other day ......because she knew I would probably be really taken with it.

And she was quite right!

Here is the link.........

**LINK**

This led me to find all the files and download them!! And then she sent me the numbers as well!!

So.......I wondered whether anyone else would like to "do" something with these patterns?

It could be anything you fancy.....quilt/bag/cushion/anything else!! as long as it has at least one letter or number!!

Best Rosemary
