That is a really lovely purse...well done.

To stop the bag flopping you could try putting some Rigiline (boning that you can sew through) around the top of the bag - stitch it down - before you turn the bag inside out.  Hope that makes sense.

Velcro might help a little, but then you'll still have the flop, it will just be to one side or the other with both sides together instead of each side floppin open.  It really is a design flaw.  Store-bought purses that are designed like this are ultra-stiff.


I guess I'm in a no-win situation then Sad  Perhaps I'll just have to make sure that I have a notebook in the purse at all times.  That should help the purse retain its shape Tongue

Thanks for the compliment and idea Smiley  I'm off to the shops this morning and I'll definitely look for nylon boning to experiment with!
