I generally use heavy/extra heavy sew-in interfacing, I have an aversion to fusible as I think it often starts to come away from the fabric (especially over time) and gives the fabric an unnatural stiff look and feel. I do use fusible for small areas such as straps and handles though. I've only used Timtex on the Weekender bag - not an experience I'd be keen to repeat! I've not yet used fleece. I guess it depends on the look and feel you want.
Going to enjoy going back through your blog now...

Hi, I am glad you have raised this subject. I have been using a curtain interlining in my bags mainly because it was cheap when I was making them to sell. I've not done any to sell for a while and would like to find a better lining for the bags I am doing for myself and as gifts. I have been toying with the idea of opening an etsy shop though, not sure about it.
I will have a look at the Amy Butler link, thanks,

At the moment I have been using curtain bump. I also use it for wall hangings too as I got very frustrated with wadding. Then if I need anymore stiffening I inyerface the lining a bit. I made the intwon bag this way after using think inerfacing for the frenchy bag as per the instructions, but it was too stiff. It is strong and will soften with use but it was not what I had in mind at the time.
