    What do you guys use for the bottom insert of the bow tuck bag. Do use use cardboard or something else. I'm not quite at that step yet but I should be soon (I only get to work on it a little it at night)
    Thanks,
    Jamie

    I use the poster board at WM, it's about 1/4 inch thick with foam inside. it's sturdy and cheap. You can cut it to size with an exacto knife.

    I've used the sides of 12 pack soft drink boxes. I usually use both sides.

    Thanks. I was worried about the cardboard and what would happen if I got it wet. Can find that plastic canvas at Jo Anns?

    I used an old cutting mat. Made a "pillow" case for it. Easy to remove for washing. Also used the peel and stick floor tiles and the foam core poster board.

    I also use the plastic canvas and buy it at Hobby Lobby for 49 cents a piece and can make bottoms for 2 purses out of it.

    I went looking for the foam core at Joann's but couldn't find it, but found 11X14 thin pieces of canvas on sale so I will cut it in half and make a sleeve. Hope it works.

    I used template plastic, and rounded the corners so it wouldn't poke through the fabric.

    At the dollar tree I found the plactic cutting boards. You get 2 pieces for 1.00. I get a total of 6 pieces to make 3 bags. I also make a sleeve for them.
    Next time I am going to look for the foam core.
