Product Recommendations

Pellon #987F – Pellon Fusible Fleece
Bosal #325 – Fusible Batting

I like to work with fusible battings for many of my projects. These two are staples for me. For a non-fusible, keep it thin so it doesn’t add much bulk to the project.

Fusible Interfacing: Med/Heavy
Bosal #334 – Fusible All Purpose Non Woven
Pellon #809 – Decor Bond Heavy Fusible

Med/Heavy interfacing is used with the lining fabric

Fusible Interfacing: Lightweight
Pellon #SF101 Stacey Shape Flex (white, black)

A nice lightweight interfacing gives all of the pockets a little extra support and shape without the bulk of heavier interfacings. Shape flex is a thin and lightweight woven product that fuses quickly and is easy to work with. When fused in place it adds almost no thickness to the project, but it does add support and shape. The result is similar to spray starch. It feels very nice in the hand. Give it a try and see what you think.

D Rings
Size 1″, Clover item #9538 Glossy Nickel finish (shown) or #9539 Satin Bronze finish, 2 packages of 2 rings each.

You’ll need four rings, two for each handle. Any 1″ rings should be fine. Pattern includes instructions to make handle tabs which you can use to attach fashion handles of your choice.
