I've bought three different kinds in the last week or so and I'm just not sure what to get. When I go in and ask for help I always end up getting home with fusible webbing (Wonder Under and something else.) and I'm just not sure how well that will hold up a little bag. I am just using quilters cotton and the first bag is only going to be about 7 inches tall but I would still like it to stand a little and not fall over. The second bag I plan on making is a taller diaper bag, about 19 inches (maybe more) and I know for sure I do not want that to fall over. I plan on using quilters cotton for that one as well. So...which interfacing do I buy? I read on here somewhere that someone uses Pellon 90, how would that work in what I'm wanting to do?
Thanks in advance!!

I found that a lot of it is trial & error. What works for me, may not work for you. You may need to just buy a little sample of each & try it. I use Decor-Bond from Walmart. It comes folded on the bolt (like fabric) & is iron on - because it's folded, I feel like I'm getting twice as much for the price. It's mediumweight & the only prob I have w/it is being patient enough to iron it on (it takes some time). If I want some structure, I use 1 layer ironed onto my lining. If I want more structure, I will iron to the back of the main fabric as well. I also interface my pockets & straps. Hope this helps you.
