I used mid weight interfacing on the pieces that you see on the outside, as well as a layer of fusible fleece behind that. There's a layer of fusible fleece on the lining as well- it was a lot of cutting and ironing, but worth it for the bag that will stand up on its own Smiley The pocked pieces are just interfaced (except the bottle pockets, those are "fusible fleeced" so that the bottles will stay their temperature) and sewn together. It's a strange mix but it seems to work Smiley

Thanks for the interfacing tips.  Now I need to find where to buy fusible fleece locally.

I love it! And I'll tell you what. the short straps really seem to work better in this bag.

Awesome!  You guys picked out some super fabric too - so fun!!
That is going to be (or was?) a huge hit at the shower!
Did you remember to put the Anti Monkey Butt powder and the Dr. Boudreaux's Butt paste in it?

Thanks! I like the look of the short straps better too but I think the longer straps are a little more functional. We'll see when the babies get here!

Hehe, I put a lot of the gifts inside the bag, and the ones that wouldn't fit went into a bigger gift bag. Everyone loved it! We haven't actually started using them yet, but I hope when we do that they're as useful as they are pretty!

Awesome! You did a marvelous job.
Thanks Smiley

It's my 2nd from this pattern as well, and I must say it got easier once I learned how to read Amy Butler patterns to the T.

Our Walmart stopped carrying pretty much all craft supplies Sad but I found some at Hobby Lobby. It isn't cheap, though! I should have waited until I could use a coupon.

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.
