  I was trying to think of what I could use to insulate the bag but didn't have any ideas.

Try insul-brite! Hancock's has it most of the time, near the interfacings, or you can order it online from lots of places. It's what you use to make potholders, etc.

Just put the sparkly side toward whatever you're trying to keep cold. It's as thin as the fleece used for batting, and easy to work with! It works, too.

I love the bags...thanks for sharing! Smiley

Thanks for the tip!  I've never seen insul-brite or anything like it (I live in Australia) - do you think those silver windshield shades people put in their cars to block the sun would work?

BlondieKate:

There is no possible way to make that from 18x22 piece of fabric.  You will need to either make it a bit smaller or get a new piece of fabric.  I would say 9x10.5 and then you would have 1 inch by 22 left over for the buttonhole.

I just now cut two 10" x 11" pieces from my fat quarter, as well as the 1 1/8" x 3" strip and I still have some left over...not sure why this wouldn't work for you, but here's a pic...sometimes a visual really helps if you're confused.  The leftover piece is at the bottom of the photo.  Hope this helps!

I love this idea! and everyone's creations... the one with the mushrooms is so so cute !  i have some of what I think is tablecloth material, it is soft one one side and vinyl on the other, going to try this with that as the interior. (it was in the scrap bin)

Blondiekate, at first, trying to think of it in my head I think I had the same mental block as you did so I did this to expand on what buffalo showed.



In my head I was actually trying to fit FOUR  10x11 pieces on there but still thinking it was two...  So I fired my head and got a new one.

I don't know why not, but it might not be food grade. Somebody out there know whether that would be super important since it would be sealed between fabric? I wouldn't think so, but I'd hesitate to tell you for sure.

I don't know how horrible the shipping would be...
but the stuff I am using right now I actually ordered online, for the same price as Hancocks. (My local store was being torn up to remodel and they let supplies drop.) It did cost shipping, though. I've never mailed anything to your lovely locale, though.

Thought of another name to google: Thermoweb (not sure of the spelling, you know how they like to be cute.). Still, there's shipping, unless you luck into a store on your own continent!

Good luck, let us know what you try and how it works!
