Hello voodoo friend!Now, I've never made a real purse before so I did some research on what goes into a purse. There are so many choices for interfacing and of course, many opinions on what should be used. Luckily this purse is just for me so I have freedom for trial and error.
I chose to go with Thermolam and some fusible fleece. Thermolam, I thought, is supposed to be stiffer than fusible fleece so I planned to interface my exterior with Thermolam and my interior with fusible fleece. However, even though I bought 1 yard of each, the fusible fleece was much more narrow than the Thermolam. I ended up interfacing my interior and exterior opposite how I planned, but I think it's going to work anyway. The fusible fleece I bought actually seems stiffer than the Thermolam though there is not that much difference. I also read that Thermolam is less likely to crinkle when fused. I know there are people out there who could read this post and tell me that I'm totally wrong, but like I said, I'm ok with trial and error here. Wish me luck!
