If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it! I'm looking for any suggestions for very very strong interfacing. Ive been using the strongest I could find but my purses still look too floppy to me Sad
Someone suggested I just double up on it when I apply it (i <3 fusible best lol), but I wanted to give it a shot and see if I could find something more steardy instead of using all my interfacing on one bag. Smiley

FYI I do have a Joann's, Hancocks, and Walmart in the immediate area that I could try if you know of anything good there!

Thanks in advance!

you could use buckram cloth, it is generally for hats. I think they have it behind the counter at Joanne's stores.  Smiley

I have used *fuse-a-shade* with fairly decent results.

Have you ever tried Peltex? I think it is a new interfacing by Pellon. Kind of pricey, but very stiff and perfect for purses. I have found it at JoAnn Fabrics in the past. Another one that I've never used, but heard about is Timtex. Good luck!

I use a "craft" interfacing (from Wal-mart and Hancock's) that is iron-on. It's very stiff and less than $2 a yard. It's sold next to the other interfacings in the fabric aisle. I don't, however, recommend embroidering through it...that sucks and I still have sore fingers.

There is a product called fast2fuze.  It is a super thick double sided fusable web, but it is pretty expensive.

Hmm okay, one more question and its probably quite stupid.

If i use a super strong interfacing, and say I use the Jordy method of pulling everything through-- will the stiff interfacing unwrinkle if I iron it? Also, will it lose its stiffness after being crumpled? Tongue

Thanks

I have used both peltex and pellon's craft fuse, and both unwrinkle pretty well after ironing. Best thing to do it just try it, but I think that the wrinkles will come out.
