    Well, I started with a med wt fusible fleece, which turned out to be too heavy. So for the lining I went to a med weight iron-on pellon which is much better. The fusible fleece was a challenge for my Featherweight to sew through all the layers--at times there were 6 or 8 of them. I couldn't find the interfacing suggested by the pattern. (44" wide Decor Bond by Pellon. THe pattern just says a Heavyweight fusible Interfacing--the one made up in the store was pretty rigid. I do like the softner finish the fleece gives to the bag.

    Yes this is the pattern. Digging out my pattern didn't seem like such a daunting chore this morning as it did at 11pm last night so I went looking so I could answer a pm. Thanks for finding it, PaperPrincess.
    God Bless,
