Need advice on PVC coated fabric

in Crafting
1 reply 680 views
I have been asked to make a variety of washbags etc for Xmas gifts. I need to line these with lightweight PVC or similar coated fabric. The trouble is I cannot tell from websites what weight their PVC fabric is and I don't want stuff as thick as oil cloth or tablecloths for the insides. Can anyone tell me what description or weight of PVC I should be looking for?

    Sorry, can't help answer your question about weight of PVC, but the only advice I can give is that I used shower curtain fabric to line washbags that I made a while ago. I don't mean the plastic shower curtains, but the ones that are made of a water-resistant woven fabric. You can pick them up very cheaply in Wilkinsons or supermarkets.
