It's called "Zen Bamboo" and was designed by Lani Silver for Stitch & Zip (ALice Peterson Co.).

I am, in fact. I was thinking maybe fabric gluing some felt in as a lining (or maybe using some of that adhesive--backed felt if it will stick, and then hand stitching it around the edges just in case)... One of the ladies on the cruise used fabric and hand stitched it in (however, I hate hand stitching! LOL) and I agree with you --- it would have to have some sort of stffener applied first as this case is pretty flimsy. Not as critical with some of their other kits though...

FWIW I found that plastic embroidery mesh to be a great structural material. It's easily cut to fit, but stiff enough to be useful. You might want a fabric liner besides.

Hmm, that does sound like a good idea & so does the adhesive felt.
