What kind of interfacing do you guys favor?  I bought some peltex and it seems like I went way too heavyduty.  Just want to make some not so slouchy bags and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction!
Thanks.

I use a craft weight sew-in that I get at Wal-mart for $1.44/yard.  It's not too soft, not too hard....it's just right!  Smiley

I always use Pellon for my bags unless hell has frozen over and I can't find it anywhere.

Peltex is really hefty, so use that for bags whose shape you want to be maintained regardless of overuse. Most of my bags have this, because I don't want them to flop around.

Pellon also has three grades of sew-in interfacing: 30, 40, 50.

40 is a great mediumweight interfacing that will give you shape but also that floppy effect. I use it on my Mojo Hobo and new Dalia styles.

30 is fairly lightweight, so if your outer fabric is thick (canvas?) then use that. I use the 40 when my outer fabric is quilting weight (<= 4oz).

For slouch bags use fleece or quilted calico. You get that puffy look nicely.
