Clear vinyl

I need to make some window pockets for my aid bag.

What type of vinyl are you guys using? What is a decent thickness? Any tips for sewing?

I have a roll of 0,5mm and I would say it is to thick. 0,3mm would be better.
Use some teflon tape or similar to make the sewing table more smooth so the vinyl will not stick when you are sewing.

Thickest stuff that Joann fabrics sells. 60% off coupon helps. I use it for clear document pockets and other pocket-related things mostly.

When I was getting in the shower last night I had an epiphany -  WOAH, this shower curtain liner is PERFECT! Wife! How much was this shower curtain? -- $4.99. BOOM.

The wife says TJ Maxx...I looked online but didn't see it. I'm gonna swing by the store tomorrow and see if they have anymore.

Just updating here - Went to TJ Maxx - can confirm shower curtain liner for $4.99, decent thickness (not stated on package), waterproof, easy to sew. Seems perfect for my purposes.
