What are you most proud of? I am very happy with the way the two fabrics match.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Both the fabric and the fleece were quite stiff. Next purse will have a softer fleece.

Wonderful! Love the way you incorporated stitching into your bag.

Great looking bag. I personally prefer a highly structured purse, so I'd probably like the stiffer batting. Do you, by chance, happen to recall what brand of batting you used on this?

Thank you. I used Pellon fusible fleece, 987F. It is the same fusible fleece I used for the class project.

Beautiful colors. I really like the way you used the ideas from the class in this project. Thanks for sharing.

I've used that pattern and it makes a great bag. Making the panel from Stupendous Stitiching is a great idea! And the colors are perfect.

The bag is beautiful. Very creative of you to make the exciting stitched panel. I think I will try this myself.
