I made another bag today using the same method as the first one. However, they say practice makes perfect and instead of using one whole panel of fabric. I put 2/3's PF and 1/3 hard brown linen. I also added iron on interface to the PF to give it a bit of a stiffen. The one I used is much harder than the one used previously and this bag stands up by itself.
Then I sewed the different fabrics together and used as though it were one whole bit. This gives the bag a different slant and if I am honest, I prefer it. I can't remember what the linen is called but any fabric shop will know. It's almost like sacking but finer.
