hi, I'm making a duffle bag out of this heavy brownish orange material which i have embridered with a purple butterfly, and I'm stuck. I know i need to put piping/tubing along the seams on the cirular peices, but how do i strengthen the rest i want thew straps to be one continueous circle that is sewn on as one, kind of like the louis vuitton keepall bag in design, but made of a cotton material so how do i strengthen the rest of the bag so it doesnt slouch?

Heavy interfacing and a stiff base such as card board inserted in the bottom of the bag will help to stiffen it. To insert the cardboard/plastic base you place it between the lining and outer fabric or you can sew it so that it is removeable. This is done the same way that you make a pillow slip cover. You know when the back consists of two pieces that overlap in the center creating a concealed opening to slip the pillow in and out of. Does that make sense? Maybe someone else will be able to explain it better.  Hope that helps!

ok i am an experienced sewer, where do i sew the interfacing, and should the base be like just a rectangle  along the bottom of the bag, or should it go all the way around the bag to the zip?

thanks

I would interface every pattern piece.... or at least the major ones. So all the way around the main cylinder piece of the bag up and interface the end pieces.
