I’m a new student and had a nice conversation with Richard today by phone. I asked him about the stabilizer used in the Lesson 1 video. He said it was a Pellon stabilizer (not Bontex). He shared that for any bag that requires it to be ‘turned’ right side out after sewing you probably don’t want to use Bontex (it is apparently very stiff and would make it difficult to turn). He suggested using Pellon stabilizer for bags that require ‘turning’.
Meanwhile, I ordered my Bontex starter kit today as I’m anxious to use it for things like pockets and straps…thing’s that don’t require turning.
Thanks for the tip Richard!
