I'm working on a diaper bag using some of the ideas from here:http://www.warehousefabricsinc.com/blog/diaper-bag-with-a-divider/  It calls for craft fuse & fusible fleece.
But I'm hoping to make it zipper top (NOT recessed) using this method: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88223.0

Will it be to stiff to pull through a hole and turn out?

Thanks so much - this is my first post & I'm a total newbie.

Just make your hole big enough so everything can fit thru. Reinforce the sides of the hole real well to prevent the stiches from ripping. Also, before you turn everything, crumple up the bag. Sometimes w/being newly made & the interfacing, the bag can be stiff, by crumpling everything, you soften things up making it easier to turn. I also try to turn where the stitches end for the hole 1st to prevent tearing. Hope I'm making sense, if not I can explain more.
