Default DIY bag

Can you offer advice about synthetic material and glues for making a bag?

I want to make a bag for a set of JW shuttlepipes.
The bag should be synthetic.

I have a bag for the pattern but I thought I would ask in a post if there were already good materials (zips, glues, material) already known.

Much appreciated.

My guess is that you are using bellows to power them. 5200 caulking by 3M is a good option. Needs to cure long enough to get the smell to die down. Should be able to get it on line. Wouldn't us it it for mouth blown though. Vinyl for the bag is widely used too.

Here are some instructions that have been around for a while. I think this would be similar to David Daye's vinyl uilleann bags.
