* Fusible bag wadding will be available on the day, if you wish to purchase this.

We will provide interfacing and piping cord

 

Cardboard for bag base – we can provide perspex bottoms for the bags if required, but there will be a charge for this.  Perspex does make the bag base a lot sturdier, but stiff cardboard does just the same thing but isn’t washable.  A couple of sides of cereal boxes glued together will do the trick.
