    Bow tuck tote

    I posted earlier today about putting a zipper in my bow tuck tote. Thanks for all who responded.

    I have been using Pellon 987 fusible fleece. I would like the tote to have more body than the fusible fleece gives. Because you use 4 layers of fusible fleece, two pieces for the front sections and two pieces for the lining. I was thinking of using the fusible fleece for the lining sections, as well as the outside pocket and inside pockets.

    I am not sure what type/brand to use to give me more stability for the outside but still allow me to turn it inside out without too much problem.

    Any suggestions?

    Try Soft and Stable instead of the fusible fleece. It sews like a dream and is very light weight. Gives great body to bags. It is sold by By Annie online and in some shops
