What fabric for bag lining?

Recommended Posts

I am starting to make another bag and in the couple I completed before I just bought a standard bit of cloth to use for the lining. The tote I am about to make is for my sister and I would like to make sure it is a decent hardware ring fabric. I saw a nylon ripsrop material, would that be suitable? What do you use to line your bags? (I hand stitch if that means anything)

Ripstop fabric comes in many thicknesses but is hard wearing and has the advantage of not fraying on the edges. I have in the past made some totes that fold up completely from ripstop with croc or ostrich trimming. First pic is ripstop and the next is leather but shows how it can be folded up. The others are also ripstop and show how the clips at the ends allow more capacity if required.
