I am interested in what tricks & tips you might have for stabilizing handbags. I am beginning to think it’s an illusion! I am using home decorating fabric (cotton), and Pellon 50 interfacing. Both were “stiff” to some extent when I bought them. I washed them, and now both are flimsy and saggy. I am lining the handbags with lightweight cotton muslin and another layer of interfacing. But they just don’t have any “body” to them…..does the garment industry not prep their fabric by washing it, do they use a ton of liquid starch? The bags I am making will be used as diaper bags so they do have to have some rigidity to them. HELP!
Thanks in advance.
