Meg, on your next try, I would use the Temtex or other heavy stiffner for the sides and the bottom. Bravo to you for trying this bag after a few months of sewing. Your mom's a lucky girl and she'll love this bag. Keep up the good work. Bunny 7

Very nice choice of fabrics! As to interfacing, as a learning tool, try using your fabrics for your project and test various samples of interfacing, then you are able to make an informed decision as to the type of interfacing to use in your finished project.

A fabulous bag very neatly done and I love the fabric choices.

After reading your review I tried the interfacing called "stiffy" in the main panel lining pieces to make the bag hold shape a little better. I used the lining pieces thinking it would be too hard to add to the exterior because of the piping. I cut the Stiffy 3/4" smaller all around than the panel. I attached the Stiffy to the lining main panels using a decorative stitch before applying the pockets. It is very hard to handle, though, in sewing the lining into the bag. However, it does stiffen the bag and it holds its shape.

Your bag turned out cute. Unfortunately, timex is no longer available. You might try one of the Peltex products - 70 is a sewin, 71 is a single-sided fusible, 72 is a double-sided fusible. Good luck with your next bag!

Beautifully put together. I love the interior.

What a perfect little bag. That came out fantastic. I haven't tried one of these myself, but I think Timtex is pretty stiff.

Thanks a bunch for showing the *inside* of the purse. I'd been wondering about these patterns--if you just have to throw everything in there in a jumble, but I'm glad to see the pockets (which look very well sewn, by the way!)

I love your choice of colors. I have heard Timex is great. You might want to read some of the reviews and the suggestions of those who have made bags/purses. Wonderful job as your first bag- I hear this one is tough.
