I've been on a bag making kick lately and I've been using heavy interfacing (fusible as I'm using cotton fabrics) in all of them and I've been happy with the results....however, I'm looking at a pattern book now and it recommends interlining (sewing a piece of fabric, wrong sides together with the outer purse fabric) and treating it as one. 

Has anyone ever done this?  Should I be doing this?  It seems like it would greatly increase the cost of making a bag if you have to buy the outer fabric, lining AND this interlining which would never be seen.

Any thoughts?? If you use both methods, when would you use the interlining method?

Thanks!

I think it just depends on how structured you want the bag to be.  I'm using a heavy piece of canvas as an interlining for a messenger bag, and while it is increasing the cost that I have to pass on to the customer, it will provide more structure than simple interfacing.

I do this all the time to strengthen fabrics that may get repeated washings.  I find it holds up better than fuseable interfacing.

I interline with heavy muslin and make sure that all of the fabric has been prewashed!!  (In case the muslin and outer fabric shrink differently, it won't cause puckers.)
