    I'm thinking of ordering a pattern for the Bow Tick purse but then I seen a list of materials and it's calls for 2 yards of Pellon fusible fleece and not being familiar with this I looked it up and it seem very expensive most of what found was $6.95 a yd is there something else everyone is using?

    That is what I use. Maybe you could use 40% off at JoAnne's in store or online.
    Or you could use Warm & Natural--just be sure to quilt it well, to give it stability and to hold it together.
    Good luck!! You will become addicted! It is like--I bet you can not eat just one potato chip!!!

    I wait to get the 40% coupon from JoAnn's and buy it. I've heard other members use batting instead. I prefer a more stiff feel to the purse so I have also used the heavy fusible fleece.

    I used regular batting and spray basted it and quilted. It worked just fine.

    I got a 20 yard bolt of the Pellon fleece with a 50% off coupn from JoAnn online. I do like the stiffer feel of the bags made with it.

    Thank you for all your replies! I never thought using a coupon for Joann's to get it 50% off, I don't have a Joann's near me and I have never order online from them I should probably really do that LOL.
    I do have a Hancock I will have to keep a lookout for it on sale or a coupon.
    I'm glad to know I could use batting if I chose though.
    I quilt but I have never made a purse, you all have inspired me they are so beautiful and Jerrie I really love the pic's of yours, love the fabric your choice.

    I used warm and natural however I also used premier prints which is textile drapery fabric. I did a very simple quilting on it. I made parallel lines one way and turn to the otherside and repeated it. This gave me a block.

    I buy this several yards at a time so I have never measured how much I am using each time but I don't think it is close to two yards. Lay the the sizes you need on your cutting board (or table) and see how much it will take. You can also find it prepackaged and Hancock's might have that.

    I have always used the fusible Pellon fleece, but now I'm going to try Pellon's fusible decor bond. I made a different bag with that and I liked it a lot. It's a bit cheaper too.

    I use foam board, like for science projects. It's lightweight, strong, easy to cut and cheap.
