What you will need to make the Fat Quarter Purse:-
Note that a sheet of felt is used in place of interfacing in the tutorial. We would still recommend that you substitute the felt for a good woven interfacing fused to the fabric first, such as ShapeFlex 101 and then use a fusible fleece on top. This makes the bag both strong and soft and gives it plenty of body so it will keep its shape nicely.
