Examples: shower curtains, duvet covers, grocery totes, diaper bags, boat cushions, wheel chair bags, luggage items etc.
Ruth will show you which zippers, threads, buttonholes and tapes to use in these utility items to make them durable. These techniques are also applicable to garment construction.
