What are the dimensions you usually use when making a purse?

Do you use fusible or non-fusible interfacing?  Which do you think is easier?

Thanks for the replies!

I don't have a standard size -- it depends on what I want to fit in it.  Right now I'm making one for holding just money/passport, one messenger type bag (not sure it'll have a flap) for casual, one over the arm bag big enough to hold my sketchbooks and wallet. 

As for interfacing, I've never used fusible -- the regular kind works well enough for me, esp. since I generally don't do much ironing when I'm making purses/bags.

The size of my purse depends greatly on what I'll be lugging around with me.  They usually end up being pretty big!

I swear by fusible interfacing.  I hate ironing, but it only takes a minute or two to iron the fabric (which you should do anyway...).  I have some sew in interfacing for delicate fabrics that won't stand up to the heat of the iron.  Grin

Anything less than extraordinary is a waste of my time! (Dream for an Insomniac)
