we buy pillow cases and sew the hem at the top before threading with cord.

 

can have palin ones or patterened and if you ask parentas they often donate them

 

if smaller ones we cut them in in half

 

a parent is often able to sew if no one else can

 

and if you can find a handy person to sew we also buy old curtains or sheets from charity store and make some up.

If you are in the Southampton area why don't you try the Scrapstore? The store at Puddletown in Dorset always gets the sample books from soft furnishing covers and curtains. The squares are about the right size to sew for a story sack - I even try and match the fabric to the story if I can ! I use white cotton tape to thread through the top as a drawstring, I also sew on a bit of white material and using a permanent marker clearly write the name of the story. I find a good story inspires me to search for the 'ingrediants', mostly from charity shops and sales. I made 14 sacks into a lending library at my last setting. I have recently changed jobs but have started again already!

 

Good luck, the rewards are amazing !!

I agree with Sarah's recommendation - she's really good and will try to do any title for you - and the bags are really good quality.

I've had a look but there are no prices-are they resaonable?

Can I buy for personal use?

Have had a look in my catalogue - large storage bag £3.95, small £2.95 plus VAT.

 

I don't know about personal orders - you'd have thought they'd welcome any customer paying with a credit card. Just remember the delivery charge!

 

I didn't find the website all that helpful - I was only trying to order a catalogue and didn't get very far. Then a catalogue turned up anyway...
