Hello fellow Craftsters!

I love everyone's skill in reconstructing and recreating, so I would like to seek your advice. I've been trying for years to find this purse http://img.hottopic.com/is/image/HotTopic/249074_hi?wid=700&fmt=jpeg&qlt=95,0&op_sharpen=1&resMode=bicub&op_usm=0.0,0.0,0,0&iccEmbed=0
But have been unsuccessful. So I decided to just recreate it!
I've good as far as pattern drafting and actual sewing, but this purse, as I remember it, had a hard material behind that front fabric. It's almost like a cardboard (but much sturdier) interior, maybe with light batting on it.
Any tips on how to recreate that part?

Much Appreciated,

P^2

It appears that I''m looking for corrugated plastic or plastic canvas! I guess I could have looked further down the message board and seen that someone else had posted a similar question! Thanks to all who read!

Why does it have to be exactly like the one at hotopic?  Why can't it be inspired?   

Sew your bag like you want it, but on the front use applique for the black portion of the bag as seen in the photo link.  You could cut your design out any way that you wanted then or print it out sized to how you need it and trace that onto your fabric.  You could even use a regular sewing pattern for the bag if you didn't have enough experience to wing it and make your own pattern.   Just applique the design onto the front of the bag at the right time when constructing it.


Then you could make several with different designs or even colors.

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....
