Two material tests for a new purse lining

I’ve had a couple of failures when it comes to the purse lining. First I tried sewing, but with a semi rigid material, that didn’t work well. Then I found out the material I was testing didn’t take folding all that well. For a origami look, that’s not good.  Formulor.de is the same type of service as Razorlab.co.uk, but they got other materials as well.

After a lot of reading about different plastic materials, I found that I wanted to test mylar and silicone.

After a little drawing session, the new lining was ready to be ordered

Got the package from Formulor.de today, and the result looks very promising.

A little advertising for a great service.

For now, the mylar lining is my first choice, but I have to see the finished result, and how well they handle folding etc.

Really happy with the details.
