I found some really cute fabric in the quilting department of Jo Ann Fabrics and I would love to have a purse made out of it. Since I'm not the fastest sewer I would like it to last and quilting cotton feels really thin. I was wondering if there was anything I could put on it to help protect it.
I have some acrylic painting sealer somewhere (I tried to look for it so I could give a name, but I can't find it). I wonder if that would help.

Attach it with fusible webbing sheets to a heavy canvas backing...or laminate it with iron on vinyl..or just layer it between canvas and clear vinyl if ironing is too big a pain.
