I'm not sure If i posted in the right spot and i dont know if i'm repeating this because i havent foudn it yet but.  I'm in the middle of making my jordy bag and i decided that i should add some cardboard to the bottom so when i put my stuff in it  It wont droop in the middle.  I thought the interfacing alone would take care of the strength and structure but its not enough i guess.  Could someone tell me   at what point do i add the cardboard? PLease help.  need help asap

Hi! I moved your thread to the right place.

I would suggest not using cardboard. If it gets wet it will become soggy and maybe moldy and gross! I would use this needlwork plastic canvas stuff (http://www.chrissyscrafts.com/fullsize/pcsheets.jpg). Slide it through the hole in the bottom of the lining at step 10. Hope that helps!

Either what Lia said or use a more heavy wieght interfacing.

I also use the plastic canvas, and a good way to make sure it stays in place is to add purse feet to the bottom - when I do this, I push them through the canvas and it works like a charm  Wink
