    Thanks for going to all that trouble to teach us.

    Could you tell us what kind of saw you use to cut the Plexiglass?
    Other plastics I've tried to cut gummed up my saw blade.

    Oh heavens no I dont have a saw in my sewing room, However Ive been known to work on my car and have my own tools. You just score the the plexi with a box knife, I use my cutting board and my ruler just as were cutting fabric, but instead of a rotary cutter I have a box knife. After I score it a couple times I line up the score mark on the edge of the table and hit it swiftly and it breaks straight on the score. If you leave the plastic coating on the plexi sheet it holds onto the broken piece so it doesnt fall to the floor. Plexi is really cheap, about $10 for a sheet thats 30x36. thats alot of bag bottoms. I find it on sale and buy bunches, the last batch I got for 50% off. The quilt shop sells Baggee bottoms for an outrageous amount. And they are nothing but precut plexi.

    Bookmarking this for sure...looks like something I might be able to achieve! Thanks for the clear, concise instructions...I am a bit tote phobic, so this will be good for me to start with.

    Great tute! Do you have trouble with things getting under the plexi-glass bottom?
