1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Quilting cotton for an Amy Butler Weekender bag? on: March 13, 2011 09:24:56 AM
Hi,

I dont ever post here, but I love to lurk- everyone makes such beautiful things!

I am planning on making the Amy Butler Weekender Bag very soon and am looking at fabric options.  Can anyone comment on whether using the heavier home decor fabric is necessary or whether if quilting cotton would produce the same results.  I am not planning on making the bag exactly as in the pattern, I am going to shrink it a bit and make it so it sits on top of and attaches to the back rack of my bicycle (something like this but a bit bigger: http://www.pocampo.com/products/bags/) so the bag will need to have quite a bit of structure.  I should also mention, this will be the first bag of this complexity that I have made.

Thanks for any input!
