I’m working the kinks out what I’m calling “the ultimate tote bag project.” I’ve worked out the pattern and procedures, but I’m still searching for the ultimate materials. I want the sides of the bag to be flexible, but not floppy. I’ve tried Crafters Choice interfacing, but it didn’t have the stiffness I wanted. Has anyone used “Fuse-A-Shade” in a tote bag? I’d like to use something fusible because I don’t want to quilt or otherwise sew the interfacing to the sides of the bag.
If the Fuse-a-Shade isn’t feasible, can I simply layer stiff sew-in interfacing between the fabric and interling without actually sewing it in?
I sew, therefore I am
