I don't have any canvas bags, but the legs of old jeans work just fine as long as they don't have holes in them. A friend has a jeans leg attached with some kind of clamp to the outlet of her wheel splash pan . The sewn up hem end sits in a bucket. All the throwing slip and turnings go into the jeans leg. When the jeans leg is full, she ties up the open end and lets it stiffen. The cut and slam method of wedging doesn't require very much strength. You don't have to lift the whole lump of clay, only half at a time.
