1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Giant bag is too floppy! Help please! on: July 02, 2008 04:05:53 PM
I use sew-in craft vilene ( thats what it's called here in the UK- probably the Heavyweight interfacing is the same stuff...)

If I need it to be really stiff for a bag I will use a double layer, sort of roughly quilt-stitching them together so they don't slip about and get all unwieldy.

works for me...and has the advantage of being fully washable without going all soft with use

Ouch!  That could have been a lot worse.

The worst I've done is stab my finger with the business end of a sewing or cross-stitch needle - and the worst part of that is trying not to bleed on my work.   Tongue

If you chew on a piece of cotton (NOTpolyester) thread and roll it over a blood spot, the enzymes in your salivia will take out the stain - Not elegant , but effective....

Not sure why it won't work with a poly thread...
