Make any handbag structured and stylish with techniques for selecting the best interfacing for bags. Patternmaker and sewing instructor Sara Lawson begins by teaching you about interfacing and how to choose the perfect type for every bag. Then, see how to work with flexible fusibles, medium and heavy-duty interfacings, fleece, foams and more as you explore bag-making from the inside out. Along the way, you’ll discover the best way to test, fuse and sew each interfacing. Plus, get tips for using interfacing to support handles and hardware. You’ll learn tricks for using alternative materials such as buckram, either to add structure or because you’re in a pinch and ready to sew. Sara will also showcase her favorite designs and sewing techniques, demystify what happens when you wash hand-sewn bags and show you tips to achieve a fresh-pressed look. Never again wonder which interfacing to choose!
