    Help needed please! Senior moment has taken hold of my brain for over and hour........

    Oh my! If some one could help me out here I would sure appreciate it. At my last sewing class one of the ladies was applying a clear plastic cover over cotton to make it wipe able. I want to make a tote type bag to put recyclables in before they go outside into the main bin and need to be able to wipe the inside because it tends to get a bit messy sometimes but I can not for the life of me think what the product is called and I wanted to search for it online. She placed the plastic "stuff" over the fabric and then put a cloth on top of the two layers and pressed it on a low heat to remove wrinkles in the plastic. Then she sewed the two layers together. It's driving me mad because I am having a senior moment here....helppppppppppp.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

            Thank you. I must remember that the worst ink survives the best memory and write things down!

              I'd just use a clear shower curtain cheaper!

                  How would you go about sticking a shower curtain to your fabric?

                    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
                    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....
