There's a lot of types of rip-stop, Always. Some of the stuff I have is soft and slippery, like parachute material. It's also available in so many different finishes. I've actually seen some that was real thick and hard.
Are your lunch bags supposed to have a handle? Roll over top with velcro? Both? Do you want me to make you some? How thick do you want them?
thanks so much for the offer...but, I am using licensed Girl Scout fabrics for the outside for a specific charity event for my sister...I found out that the stiff stuff is what I am suppose to use--like for banners! It gives the bags shape and is tough and washable...It seems like it ravels a lot so I am going to serger the seams...yeah--velcro (which I hate!) and I am making thin long straps to be able to carry over the shoulder...the outside fabrics are really cute---thin mints, badges, and going green...
I look forward to destashing the stuff!
