    I have a friend who does some sewing in her spare time. She asked if i still needed any SS/Bologna bags.

    SURE

    So i told her my idea on the thread colors.

    Green thread for mildly warm, Red for warm/hot and white for regular.

    Different lengths and i have 20 yards being made into bags now. Un bleached cotton muslin.

    Got a small 3lb batch of SS all mixed for smoking tonight.

    I was wondering the same thing as you until I realized who posted it.  Once I saw that it was nepas I knew it had to be that, simply by his prior posts. 
     
     
  11. Oh Nepas. You continually amaze me with your sausage making prowess. [​IMG]Did you print those yourself too?

    My wife tried to show me how to sew with her machine, I messed it up so bad she had to take it to a shop to get fixed. Last time for that so its cheaper to pay my friend.

    My wife is a quilter. She has 3 sewing machines worth somewhere around $3000 each. I think she could make some bologna bags, but then again I have a hard time getting her to sew a button on my pants.

    The time in the fridge really takes the green weight down and makes a semi dry SS.
