Giving the bag structure

To give some structure to a bag, there is usually an element of stabilisers and foams used.

The problem is there is not much choice here in Australia, unless you want to pay $35 for a metre, which therefore increases the selling price.

As an alternative I dropped in to our local Clarks Rubber and found some Peeled Foam which is around 6mm thickness and thought, that may just do it, and at only $7.25 per metre its even better.

I tried it out on my medium tote that I am making and it works well, it is surprisingly easy to work with and goes through the machine effortlessly – result!
