select the edges at the ends, hit 'split', shift drag the edge to make the top and bottom heat-sealed bit, select one side of polys (individually not marquee) then delete them so there's only one side of heat-sealed bit left on the top and bottom and check the 'two sided' box in the material you'll use

Thanks, should I start out with an extruded elipse?

personally i'd start out with a segmented cube then use soft selection or select some polys and use a ffd modifier- probably 3x3
start out with a shape that's most like the target anyway

I also really have to study up on soft selection, I don't understand it. Thanks.

edge mode mate, near the top
i've not got max open at the moment or i'd be more specific- but it's in there somewhere're on max 6 aren't you- not sure max 6 had it
delete a row of polys on one side at the bottom and top, pull the edge out then recreate the deleted polys as best you can i guess would be a solution- probably not the best one though

ok, will practice it. Also I did make a practice bag but now it won't take the material. Is because there are edges that arent' welded?
