i hope this wasn't already answered elsewhere in the post (it's so loooong...)  Wink

okay, i just finished my first jordy bag, and though i used interfacing, it's not at stay-in-its-shapish as i'd like.

has anyone tried sandwiching some thin cardboard between the purse & the lining?

it could work, dont'cha think?  Undecided  maybe?

for the padded bag try  batting - they sell it in the quilt department and as it's made for padding quilts it should be easier to sew. it comes in iron on or sew in, and in varying thicknesses.

as for the cardboard question - i don't know if anyone has tried that but i know a few people have used needlepoint canvas. good luck!

Hmm...yes I must try that batting. I think I have some left here...I guess I was trying too hard to duplicate what that designer does to her bags. I must ask her how she does it (subtley, of course... Grin )

I'm making a bag with batting right now (because i have no interfacing), and it's going pretty well so far.

Hmm...I have the book "Handmade Bags" by Terrence Terry, and with every pattern that calls for "wadding interlining" (she's British, so I guess that means "foam"?!), she says that you ought to use Vylene. Basically you sandwich the padding between the Vylene and the fabric.

I've been going a bit crazy with these Jordy bags.  Thank you so much for the great tut! So, here are all of mine.  All of them are experiments!
This is my first one, I didn't have any interfacing so it's very floppy
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/15091C7.jpg

I love the inside- it is an old scarf of my Granny's <3
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/15091C8.jpg

My second . . . the colors were so ugly and nothing really matched, that's why it's in sepia color.  
I pretty much hate it!  
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/15091C4.jpg

Then I tried a flap, it's a bit crooked and not the right size . . . again, experiments!!!!

I got a cording foot thing and tried it out on these 3 different "yarns"

inside

This is my "mom" bag.  I wanted it big enough to carry an extra diaper and wipes!  It came out a little bigger that I had planned

Here they all are together showing the different sizes.

I'm working on one right now that is chocolate brown with pink velvet for the inside.  I'm really excited about it!  I'll post it when I'm done . . .

I love this tutorial and I think I'm going to try it out as my first sewing project! Why is it called a Jordy bag, thanks for all the wonderful tutorials.
