Fabulous bag!  I love the fabrics they chose!  What a lucky sister you have!  Smiley
I recently discovered fusible fleece for my bags, too, and WOW what a difference!  The only problem I have with it is the expense.   Undecided  I've recently switched to regular craft fleece, and I flatline it to the bag... works just as well, and it's much cheaper.  You might want to try it!

You guys are awesome, thanks so much!

barbolot, I also have a problem with the cost of fusible fleece. For this project, I wasn't paying for the supplies so it wasn't a problem, but it definitely is an issue when I'm forking over the cash. Thanks for the tip!

amber565, I think I have the opposite problem, I can't do backpacks! And I used a pattern and modified some little things. The pattern is Simplicity 2924, I've used it quite a few times now, adding or modifying little things all the time. (See all the other ones below)

The one I carry: <http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311461.msg3578255#msg3578255>
Number two, for someone else: <http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305797.msg3502429#msg3502429>
Number three, for someone else: <http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339899.msg3937971#msg3937971>
And a fourth, not meant to be a diaper bag, and only loosely based on the pattern: <http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319846.msg3685485#msg3685485>

I always buy my fusible fleece with 40% off Joanns Coupons. I usually buy four or 5 yards at a time. Also sometimes if you use heavier weight fabrics such as upholstery fabrics or vinyl you don't always need it especially on smaller bags.

I like the idea of fusible interfacing plus fusible fleece. Did you fuse the fleece to the outside fabric and interfacing to inside, or vice versa? And do you think it matters?

I bought the pattern and will pick out some fabric next week, and looking forward to starting this project.

Thanks!

wow this is very cool. I love the fabric. I am going to make a bag for my sister who is due in January, so collecting ideas and I love the way you have stiffened the fabric. I have never used fusible fleece but might give it a go.

thanks for sharing!

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

Thanks, everyone. I'm obviously way behind on reading the comments!


mompalm, I cut the seam allowance off the fusible fleece so it is a little smaller than the fabric. This way it doesn't thicken the seams too much. So then I fuse the fleece to the outer fabric, and then the interfacing on top of it. The interfacing helps hold the fleece on, and also helps stiffen the whole layer, but the seams are only as thick as the fabric + interfacing, not all three. Make sense?

Theosmumyum, all these bags that I have made have been custom. I've sold a couple, and the price varies (the other ones were just gifts, I've never swapped before). It just depends on how much the fabric is!
