    I just finished my Bowtuck tote - this one is for me. Actually I wasn't in love with the fabric (Kaffe Fassett) until I put the tote together - now I love it and I am using this one. I call it my Hippy, dippy tote bag.

    Okay.......I've not made one yet, but with the pattern, it calls for some kind of fusible pellon, is that same thickness as warm and natural???

    I don't know - I have only used the Pellon for these. I think others on this site have used warm and natural - its worth a shot.

    Two different things - Pellon comes in iron on and is thinner than batting.

    It's a beautiful bag. Kaffe Fassett fabrics are one of my favorites.

    Warm and Natural is a little thicker, but you could try it. The Pellon fleece we use for the BowTucks is fusible so if you use Warm and Natural you'd have to quilt it to your fabric ...

    I like hippy dippy. Reminds me of the 60's and 70's.
