Ok so I was at a ma and pop fabric store in my town and was telling the lady about the disastrous result of using Pellon Extra Firm stabilizer for the outside of my bag and using 911FF on the lining fabrics because it wrinkles like crazy no matter what I do.

she mentioned trying

SF101 on the outside fabric and fusible thermolam plus on the lining to give it a plush kind of cushiony look.

any of you have experience using this combo? I'm just not sure the SF 101 would give the stability i like my bags to have. I like them to be sturdy and stand up on their own even when empty but i also like them to have some softness and flexibility to them.

I would like to know what is equivlent to these products in Australia.  They dont seem to be available here. A lot of interfacings are too soft and dont hold their shape

I was trying to decide what interfacing to put in a bag so that is stood up but was still soft. In the end I found a bag that seemed right in a thrift store and ripped it open and what I found inside was:
The base was made of the kind of foam that roll up gym mats are made from, EVA foam about 1/4 inch thick
The walls were supported by very thin layer of yellow foam (seat cushion kind) but only 1/8 inch thick. In the UK this is called peel foam.
I have made bags using both of these very successfully, they don't need to adhere to either the outer fabric or the lining fabrics they simply lie or stand between the two.
I don't have 10 posts yet so I can't add picture yet, sorry.

Crafting is my favorite waste of time.
