When ever I make a tote I use fusible (medium) interfacing on the outside fabric and everything looks great but when I go to add the liner it all flemsy and loose. I dont use an interfacing on the inside but I have seen pics of others that dont either and the inside looks fine. What is your secret?

Am I making the liner to big or something? coz this is a problem on ALL of my bags so far...maybe I should use interfacing?

Have you tried putting some stitches in the corners or along the seams, to hold the lining in place?  That is what I usually do, and it helps keep the shape of the bag.

i'd try a heavier interfacing on the outside. i just got this super stiff stuff at walmart for $1.44 a yard that i can't wait to try. the only times i've used interfacing on my liner has been when it's really light material and then i used probably what you're using on the outside....

I generally sew my liner with a lightly larger (we're talking just barely here....like 1/16th of an inch)seam allowance.  You end up with the liner being ever so slightly smaller than the outside.  Think about it for a second....it goes on the inside of the other one, so it has to fit on the inside.  It's more like "nesting" the liner instead of duplicating the outside of the bag.  Does that make sense?
