Featured in the PR book!
If you are looking for a durable interfacing or interlining that adds body to fabric crafts such as purses, tote bags, halloween costume hats, etc. try using nylon replacement screen.

It is washable, and lightweight, yet it has body, and wont get limpy. It comes in nylon, polyamide, and polyester. Each with a different stiffness. You can find it in rolls at the hardware store or Home Depot. Sometimes you can find a variety of mesh sizes too!

Yes, you can sew through it quite easily. remember, it is NOT metal. It also makes nice beach bag totes, and the sand shakes out when you pick it up.

What a great idea and so much cheaper and easy to find than comparable material meant for sewing.

Great idea! I'm going to try this in some of the knitting tote bags I make. It would be nice it they "stood-up" and weren't floppy. Thanks!
