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!
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.
