I have tried two different interfacings.  What do you suggest?

i highly recommend decorator weight iron-on interfacing (iron before sutting the pattern - 1 less step!). you may also want to consider poly boning in your seams to give it shape (you can get it at a fabric store. here's an example of it:  http://www.u-handbag.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15&products_id=89), or adding buckram or plastic needlepoint canvas to the top.

you could always use two layers of interfacing on each piece to make it more sturdy, it's worked for me!

i use peltex fusible interfacing...it's a bit more costly, but i've upped the $ of my purses, too (more $ fabrics as well as buckles, etc)..i don't know where you are..walmart here carries a stiffer pellon that's not fusible, but it can stand alone if needed.  i think it's like $1.47/yd. it's soft enough that won't be a problem sewing through a few layers of fabric.  good luck!
