These pouches also feature a polished finish both inside and out, thanks to their full lining and absence of visible raw edges.  In addition, to ensure longevity and durability, both pellon and heavy interfacing is used to give a padded and structured feel.  Say goodbye to flimsy, sagging bags — when made according to the pattern, these pouches will maintain their shape whether they’re full or empty.
