I was wondering what the best yarn material for a bag would be. I wanted to make a fairly big bag (like a school bag rather than just a purse), so I want something strong enough to hold the weight of all the crap I'll be filling it with. I also don't want to get super expensive yarn because I'm limited on funds.

Or does the material type not really matter so much if you line it well? It'd be great if I could just use some cheap acrylic yarn and line it with fabric...

I've used all types of yarn to make bags, but I also line all of them too.  I haven't heard any complaints as of yet.

You can use any type of yarn you like; you can reinforce it with a slightly thicker lining or use double layers of lining if you're worried about how sturdy it is. Or use the belt and braces approach and do both...
Since pretty-looking thick fabric where I am can be very pricey, it's often cheaper for me to use a double layer. And it's usually strong enough with just that.
