Q&A with LilyAnneH

Creativewan asked:
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! :)
LilyAnneH answered:
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.
Brett Bara asked:
Your bag looks great! I absolutely love the fabric, I have a soft spot for ladybugs myself. :)
LilyAnneH answered:
Thank you so much :)
