    I particularly like the window stickers – there are some revamped slogans there I think – to stick in your helicopter window – amongst others! 🙂

    The bag-making instructions have been given a once-over too & now tell you to start with ONE piece of fabric for the bag body with a fold for the bottom of the bag. I like it!

    I have just been looking at the resources section too, I’ll be printing some off in time for the Jan 2014 handout.
    I like the tie on bag tags and the window stickers

    I’ve printed out some window stickers today, and some of the letter headers ( they will be useful when I post a bag to my local mp and various magazine editors in January ), I’ve also printed some of the bag tags ready for the big handout in January.
    If you haven’t already, check them out, there are some great resources available to download.

    Great ideas there Sazzie. Do you think bluetak is best for the window stickers?

    I think it is fine to use 2 pieces as well. If you have a particularly nice fabric to eek out by using a plain back or fabric that has a right way up for example. But it is far easier to get the edges to match up if there is a fold at the bottom so that is the way we always teach new baggers. We always encourage people to find their own ways as long as the end result is the same

    I totally agree that there is a place for bags made out of two pieces of fabric (i.e. a front and a back) and as well as the cases you suggest, Offcuts, it also allows you to use smaller pieces of material, but there’s no point in cutting the fabric just to sew it up again – and I have known people do just that because they were following the previous instructions slavishly!
