Ok...I'm tired of putting it off. I wanna make a diaper bag using the bow tuck pattern. I don't have any fusible fleece, but I do have batting and spray baste. I have the poly batting in a bag and I have warm and natural. Which would be best to use? Or would you recommend not using this method at all? The baby shower is next weekend and I will not be able to purchase fusible fleece before then, nor have the time to work on the bag. Any advise?

I would go with the cotton and if you do some quilting also it will help stiffen it up.

I agree the batting will work fine! Use your basting spray attach is as the directions state and quilt. You should not have any problems!!

Batting and spray baste worked well for me when I made one for my sister.

I use my left over cotton batting and I have made 5 that way and it works great. Go for it.
