Doesn't your interfacing shrink, making ripples in the fabric? Mine always does and its so frustrating.

It used to... I sort of have a method now. Like stephielou, I start in the center and work my way out in a little circular region, gradually getting bigger. If it ripples,  I rip it from the fabric, and start that place over. After it is all semi attached, I do the serious heavy ironing, leaving it in place for a while. It takes several minutes for each piece, but it is so worth it.

Awesome HUGE bag!  I'd fill this with so much stuff I'd need to drag it behind me, or give it wheels! 

About the interfacing... maybe I've been lucky, but mine has always stuck.  I use the Pellon mediumweight or featherweight from walmart and the high cotton setting on my iron with STEAM!  It never sticks without steam for me!  I also skip the damp press cloth and just iron directly onto the interfacing.  Good luck!

I love your fabric. Every time I go fabric hunting at wal mart I'm tempted to buy a pattern similar to this bag.... but I hate buying bag patterns

I know...me too...but then maybe it would come out the right size Wink

The outside fabric is from Joann's...they had it in pink too.

cute huge bag , as for the interfacing problem, it sometimes depends on what fabric you are trying to adhere it too, sometimes upholstery type fabrics have been treated with a stain resistant treatment and thats why it wont stick. I dont care for fusibles because of the rippling and the pain in the assedness that you sometimes encounter with them, I just buy non fusible and spray it with repositionable adhesive spray that I get at hancock fabrics.

That is genius! As is the coinage of the term "pain in the assedness."
