"Interfacing is called interfacing it doesn't really have any other name."

I've also heard of fusible interfacing being called "fusing."  It confused me at first...

If I heard someone refer to "fusing" I would expect they were talking about that spider-webby stuff that you iron between two pieces of fabric to fuse them together. Fusible interfacing is already attached to a fabric, unlike fusing.

I got the fabric at our local spotlight store here in australia, not that expensive and they had lots of tiger, leopard etc so i am going back for some other fabric as my daughter wants one and so do i and my mum too lol.
I posted my pic of my jordy on a couple of my sewing groups and they all liked it so i have directed them to read the tutorial.

thanks for the comments

One thing I have to say -- if you haven't made a bag yet, you've read all the directions and you're still a little confused -- try just getting started and going along before you go crazy trying to make it work logically in your head. I know some parts of the directions didn't necessarily seem clear until I had the pieces in front of me -- like the sewing the corners together bit. When you have the pieces in front of you and you think "Hm, I need to sew this so it makes a sort of boxy bottom" it suddenly clicks in your head what you need to do.
Just what I've noticed with this and other projects..

I agree, the first time I read through the directions I couldn't picture it, but when I just jumped in and got the pieces cut out it almost put itself together!!  Its much easier to understand the next step if you've already completed the one before it!

It is much easier to do if you follow step by step rather than reading ahead before you reach that step. When I work with a new pattern I like to use scraps of old material I have laying around and make a smaller mock version just so I know I can do it. It's way better that way because you don't waste your good material on something you're not sure you fully understand.

i love the jordy bag. it is very cute and seems easy to make, it looks like it's cheaper to make a bag instead of purchasing a brand name one from the department store
