I was thinking about cutting up a binder like a modified unassembled box (looks like a lower case T or a cross--with scores along each major intersection.  The bottom would be the base, and the pieces going into the sides would be shorter but long enough to hold the base in place and give the purse some structure.  All in the place of interfacing.
I'm not sure my machine is going to like plastic.  If not, I'll just cut out a base for the bottom and fit it in there.

fantastic bags!!  but i'm more interested in where your male model found that Captain EO t-shirt!!!  that's from back in the day.  it must be a collector's item by now (no offense, obviously since i'm old enough to remember it).

Everything I know about sewing I learned in suture class.

   craftymed-    Thanks! But I have some bad news. My model (I like to call him"Eric") "borrowed" the shirt from a girl he once had a crush on. I think that was about 8 years ago. It was very nice of her to let him borrow it for that long, huh? The saddest part of that little tale is that he's never even been to Disneyland/world to see Captain EO! Now, of course, it's too late. I shed a tear for him. You might want to check Ebay for your own shirt. I'm pretty sure I've seen them there.

This was my first time sewing anything somewhat complicated (i've been making easy pouches)  I am pretty happy with how this turned out for it being my first time.  Next time I'll definitely buy interfacing material.  Thank you for the tutorial!!
