|(Quilted side, just followed the stem lines!)|
Instead of fusible fleece, I used headliner foam to give the bag a little more structure. The only bad thing about the headliner foam is that it isn't fusible. I used some quilters basting spray and then sewed a few lines down the main pieces and the base to hold it in place and highlight the pattern in the fabric. I was too lazy to go full on quilted, but I think this will keep the foam from shifting around as I maneuver it through my little sewing machine.

|(No need to go crazy with spray, and you have a few tries to get it just right, if you move pretty fast)|
|(I swear it is stuck down! It would peel up if I tried tho, so I like to sew it after it has a few minutes to dry. Nice and flat!)|
This week's plans:Start sewing!!
Straps - follow the instructions to make your straps
|(Straps ready to sew!!)|
I also only cut one of the straps from the pattern, and then cut it in half because I want the handles to be much shorter, but still there.
