What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use something slightly heavier than cotton poplin!

This looks like one fun fabric to work with Lalita! What type of interfacing did you use, if any (referring to your advice). Is there a closure on this bag? Congrats to you on finally making your thought of bag a reality! :)

I used what I had on hand which was Vilene H130 fusible fleece. It gave the bag a bit of body but feels really soft and flexible and lightweight :) No closure unfortunately, I would have liked to have added one but didn't have a zipper in the right size. This was really just a test run for me, so I used what I had available, although I'm considering adding snaps as a closure, lol. If I was doing a closure I would have done a recessed zipper.

Your bag looks great! I absolutely love the fabric, I have a soft spot for ladybugs myself. :)
