    i used to make these for all of my cross-stitch friends. The baggies get weak after awhile and tear. I wish there was a way to make these with a stronger bag.....

    I tried a zipper with the tablecloth plastic, but it looked ugly.

    freezer bags are stronger plus slider bags are a must for ease in open/closing

    I'll have to try the freezer bags. That is a good idea. I'm sure I just used a regular bag.

    We made these a couple of years ago at our park in the Rio Grand Valley in Texas. We used Hefty gallon freezer bags, they last really well. Let's see if I can get the pictures in. :lol:
