    I did use only 1/2 the fleece in the handles and sewed 1/8 and 1/4 on each side. I have a Pfaff, so they sewed up well. I just could not handle the four thicknesses of fleece in the handles (as the pattern directed). I think next time I might try the lining without the fleece. Not sure if I need it to keep it standing up, but it would make the seams less bulky. Maybe I just had fleece that was too thick. Don't know if they sell different thicknesses or not.
    You could always try 1/4 of the fleece, so there's just one thickness of it. I like to have cushioned straps on my bags - a bit more comfortable for me than no fleece at all.

    I don't think they sell a thinner one.
