Purple bag and Vilene Decovil interfacing

You know this bag already 馃檪 This is te same model as the green-navy blue one. Of course I used other fabrics, but it is not the only difference. The handbag was stiffen in a different way, so it gained a more box-like character.

As a stiffening I used Vilene Decovil interfacing. This is a very good product though, like everything, has some flaws.

Pros:

  • it stiffens a fabric very well, there’s no comparison to apparel interfacings
  • it’s really easy to fuse in home conditions
  • adds some weight to sewn things

Cons:

  • price
  • requires a different sewing technique – it is best to fuse it at the end, and you won’t be able turn it over a small hole
  • hard to get (at least in Poland)

Back to the bag – it was made of faux suede in 2 colors, the lining is cotton. As usual adding rivets makes it look more professional – I really love them 馃檪
