    Can Warm & Natural batting be substituted for PFF in bags and such? I have a ton of batting remnants here from my LA business and really hate to buy PFF if I can just use them instead.

    Thanks!

    I don't see why not. Keep in mind the W&N will shrink a bit while the Pellon probably wouldn't. If you want it fused until you sew it you can use spray or some fusible web.

    Thanks, Gale. That was my line of thinking, too, but I wanted to be sure :)

    It may make a difference in how stiff your bag is, the fusible pellon seems to give the bag a firmer shape.

    you can use any batting you want, it is your project! if you want it fusable just iron fusable to your batting or use basting spray.

    I just took a mini bow tucks bag apart because the Pellon was too thick. I'm going to warm and white instead. And, I'm going to make the handles narrower and shorter. I have an idea for the bows. I'm going to sew the raw edges together and turn it inside-out, like a tube. Possibly stitch it on each side. I'll have to wait and see.

    I have used it in some of my bags. I used basting spray and quilted it. Worked out just fine.
