i have that really cute "cotton candy friends" flannel fabric from joann's and i'd LOVE to make a simple hobo out of it. but i've made flannel purses before and they pill so bad, i was wondering if there was anything i could do to prevent that?? and what weight of interfacing/what type do you guys think would be good??

I use medium weight interfacing.  It's stiff but flexible.

Where does the flannel pill?  On the bottom where the bag touches table tops, or on the front and back where the bag rubs against the arm and torso?
