    I don't want to use the Pellon fusible fleece lining called for in the Bow Tucks pattern so what do you use instead? Was thinking of using a Pellon fusible but not the fleece. Does it need to be heavy duty or fusible on both sides? Thanks, Ann in TN

    I used reg cotton batting and spray baste. Worked just fine. Use what you have. Be sure and post photos:)

    Only one side needs to be fusible.

    I used the thin batting on the roll at wallyworld...none of it was fusible as I'm too cheap :)

    I just cut them the same size as directed and quilted away. I think they use fusible so it doesn't move around but I didn't have that problem.

    I did run a line of fusible webbing down the center when I did the handles just to hold them while ironing.

    I don't always quilt my bags, so I do use the iron on fleece. Spray baste and regular batting would be fine if you quilt the pieces. Have fun with the project!!

    I liked the results best when I used Fusible Fleece on the outside pieces and Decor Bond (heavyweight interfacing) on the lining pieces. It gives it a bit more body.

    ooooh...I like stiff as well..so I have Peltex...is that similar to what you use? It is a heavy interfacing made for bags like Timtex, but fusible on both sides! I have timtex as well! I can also get Craf-tex medium and heavy!

    I used fusable, but it didn't fuse very well. Worked just fine anyway. I think it was too old. You do need to make the bag stiff though so it looks nice and holds it's shape.
