My sister wants me to make her a laptop bag. It's going to be messenger-bag-styled. However, everyone else's messenger bags seem much stiffer/solid-er than the ones I make, which normally I like, but for this it would probably be better as a stiffer bag.

Does this stiffness just depend on the fabric used? Or is there some way to do it with less-stiff fabric?

Thanks  Smiley I hope this made sense.

partially on the fabric, but more on the interfacing you use.  I would consider something iron in for a bag like what you are wanting maybe like craft fuse.
