I'm looking for some type of waterproof fabric to line little zipper bags that I'm making.  Does anyone know of an easy-to-work-with waterproof fabric for this type of application?  Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I think that rip-stop nylon fabric is water proof.  I also think that oil-cloth is too.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Some of the free spirit designers e.g. Anna Maria Horner have prints on laminates, which are waterproof.

I make waterproof diaper/nappies for my little girl and use PUL fabrics - they are either cotton or polyester fabrics with a layer of laminate on the back.  It is only slightly thicker than normal fabrics and very easy to use.  I've made wetbags and little makeup bags with it and it looks like a normal liner.

I've chopped up (the more plastic-y) shower curtains to sew with before.  I didn't make a bag, but a bike seat cover, and the shower curtain held up to that use.  The vinyl coated tablecloths may work too, but the ones I've tried didn't hold up to the rain storms as well as the shower curtain.

I would say PUL or oilcloth but those can be a little expensive. I really enjoy working with oilcloth though, I have a diaper-bag made out of it and it is awesome! If I were just lining the inside of something I might just use a less expensive vinyl, and I like the poster above who suggested a shower curtain liner!

Ripstop fabric isn't waterproof in itself, but silicone impregnated ripstop nylon is.  There's non ripstop silicone impregnated nylon too.  I'm not sure where you can buy it though.
