The instructor will have kits of vinyl and stabilizer available for sale for $8 a kit for the large an extra large size bags. Please let the staff at Patricia’s know how many kits you would like to purchase when you sign up for the class if you want to purchase these supplies from the instructor.
Required before class: cut out all the pieces and quilt the back of the bag/bags before coming that day. Iron all your pieces as well.
The wonder clips are definitely a plus when working with the vinyl. I also would suggest having a larger pair of scissors. I used them to trim the vinyl before I sewed on the binding. I would suggest you also have an extra machine needle on hand just in case they run into a problem sewing over a heavy duty zipper.
