I'm making the Fit to be Tied purse. Well, I've actually finished the crocheting and need to find $$ to by fabric for the lining. Mine seems a little floppy though. How's yours? I'm hoping it will stiffen up when I line it. I used plain ol' Red Heart worsted weight yarn (that's all I had on stash, and really wanted to start one of the hooker projects!)

have you seamed it together yet?  i slip stitched with the right sides together to close up the sides and then turned it right side out and that helps to keep it from flopping.  it does flop a teensy bit.

Yeah, mine's all stitched together. If it's not much better when I add the lining, I'll rig something up. maybe put in some plastic canvas.

Plastic canvas would definitely help to make it less floppy! Another way would be to use interfacing on the wrong sides of the lining pieces.
