I'm making a tie bag as a last minute gift. It's too late for me to order (or find locally) timtex for the bottom. Any other ideas for a firm bottom that I might have around the house?

HOw about one of those plastic cutting mats? I got a fairly large one and cut it to different sizes for the kitchen.

Do you have any plastic cross stitch mesh?  Maybe several layers of stiff interfacing quilted together would be strong enough.  Good luck.

JoAnn,

I don't know the size you need, if it isn't too large, you can cut up the plastic container covers.

Thanks for all the ideas. It turns out I found a piece of very heavy stiff canvas in with my interfacings. Unfortunately, I messed up the bag slightly. The drawing in Wild Things doesn't show the seam so I assumed it was at the sides. I put a large embroidered pocket on what I thought was the front. I was able to rotate the bottom so that the pocket is at the front, but the tie strap is going to be awkard when used. For such an easy project, it's not turning out to be quick. I've already taken a break on garment sewing. Now I think it's going to be all sewing.

JoAnn, Sounds like it is time for some serious chocolate and a good book.
