So I've been working on this:

Looks nice right? Well there is a problem.

I have NO idea what to do with the interior. I have tried 3 different things and all of them looked like crap and got ripped out. The remaining black part is from this foam stuff I tried. That was a terrible idea.

There's also this giant hole in the bottom. I cut it out to provide more space.

How should I do the interior? Keep in mind that I will be using it to transport food. It doesn't have to be leak proof, it would however be nice if it were easy to clean. I'm just clueless.

So cool! First idea that popped in my head was the expandable foam you buy in a can. You could fill it up and then maybe cut the center out, kind of like a book box?

Hmmm. That's not a bad idea. I just don't really think I could carve it away neatly. I'll totally keep that in mind though.

EDIT: I'm considering using Vinyl tape.

the only thing i can think of is to make a liner out of oilcloth.
perhaps if you framed the inside(make it more squared off) in cardboard or foam core? then lined that with something waterproof?

I went with vinyl tape. I think it looks fine. If I do another one of these I will for sure get wider tape.

Hi, Need help? Gule poster board inside. Then you can put fabric to that. You could also put batting on on the poster board before the fabric. I think it would be a cuite purse. Paint things on the out side, and add beeds etc. Well have fun show us what you come up with. Kcraft49
