ByAnnie's Soft and Stable™ is a terrific product which I developed to use in place of batting or other stabilizers in purses, bags, totes, home dec items, and more.
See the difference that Soft and Stable makes in the picture at right. The droopy handbag on the right is made with batting. The handbag on the left stands up tall and holds its shape, even with the heavy wooden handles which are attached.

"I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! Made eight placemats out of the larger package. SO great and easy to work with. Thanks so much. Looking for more patterns to use this product with." Judy B.
"I have made a couple of bags with the Soft and Stable and I am so impressed with the body it gives to the bag's shape without adding a lot of weight. For those of us that make handbags, one of the greatest challenges is finding something to fortify the bag's shape and I think your product is definitely a fabulous step in the right direction. Thank you." Connie G.
"Soft and Stable is a great product. I made a purse and it is perfect and the stability great." Lois C.
"I can't tell you enough how much I love the Soft and Stable. I have been sewing for many years and got on to handbags in the last few years but have never seen a finished bag looking as good until using Soft and Stable." R. D.
"I created my own patterns for purses and inserts, etc., and really did not think your Soft and Stable product would work. I was pleasantly surprised because I no longer need to use heavy, hard to sew stablizers - but can go to your product. I have a Bernina and a Viking and recently purchased a very heavy duty Singer for the tough work and to preserve my "good" machines and thanks to your inventive genius, I no longer need to rely so heavily on the (ugh) Singer. My purses are one-of-a-kind art projects and I love the creative process and am not so fond of the construction, so you have made my life much easier with Soft and Stable. Thank you, Annie!" J. H.
