Thank you, have tried your suggestion and it works really well, I'm pretty pleased with the final product too.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Sail cloth handbags on: August 15, 2007 05:08:42 AM
Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I'm making a handbag for a present out of sailcloth, and I'm a bit stuck for designs.  There's lots of bags out there made from the thick sail cloth material, but I've got the thin spinnaker sailcloth, which is really flimsy and I'm not sure that it will take well to interfacing.

Any suggestions would be welcome, and if anyone has any experience doing this I'd love to hear from them!

Cheers,

Helen

Brilliant!  I want to make one of these for my blokey, as he too loves his zen micro!

Hey,
I've found that just using a layer of sturdier fabric between the outer and lining layer works really well.  Use a stiff cotton twill or something like that, which are usually quite cheap.  Or for small clutch bags I found that starching them works wonders!  You can get spray on starch, which you just iron, to get a stiffer bag.
Hope that helps.

I'm feeling totally inspired and off to search the charity shops right now for inspiration!!!

Or just ironing it into the right place might help, or maybe if you starch it, then iron, that will stop it from poking out?

Hey,
Couldn't quite tell from the picture, is the bag made of the sushi mat things?  Or is it more of a place mat?  Looks great, either way!
