It looks nice, but I understand your frustration. I didn't care for the Timtex either and found it very difficult to work with. I use a heavy interfacing that isn't as stiff as Timtex or I lined twice basically by using two peices of lining (basting together). I made the Velma bag and I wish it had more body but it's better than fighting with the Timtex. Beautiful fabric choices & I hope you can salvage the fabric. Thanks for a great review!

yes, thanks for sharing your thoughts even though it didn't work out. It helps everyone. And you're right, that fabric is darn cute--maybe with a little time you won't mind putting a new lining in!
