I’ve never really liked working with Timtex – that ultra stiff interfacing that most bags and purses call for. I know that it usually gives a great shape and support to my projects, but it such a PITA to work with. So, why I decided to use it for my Stash and Dash pattern I will never know. This is what my make-up bag looks like right now:
It’s hard like armor and is in the shape of a tortoise shell. It also makes an unpleasant crinkly sound if you try to shift it around – all in all, in my opinion, it’s a wadder (I also don’t like the fabric combination that I used either, but I was left with the fat quarters that hadn’t been packed away yet). Next time around, I’m digging through my fabric boxes and finding my Amy Butler prints (or something like it) and using a much lighter weight interfacing. Now back to my Burda tunic!
