I'm about to start making a weekender bag, but I didn't really see any Pellon peltex at the fabric store I was shopping at.  (We don't have Joanne's here, I was shopping at a Canadian chain called Fabricland.)  But next to the interfacing, I found a bolt of something that seems similar, but there wasn't really much information on the bolt.  It looks like thin white felt, it's fairly stiff, and the tag said it was fusible.  I did a test iron with some scraps, and it appears to be fusible on both sides.  It comes in 22" width.  Does anyone know, is this the right stuff or something I can use in place of the peltex?  (It cost $6 per metre, and I got it 50% off... maybe it's some cheaper version of peltex?)

If it does the job - giving your bag body and/or strength - sure, go ahead and use it.
