The man has a purse

So the first post is a finished product. Wahoo! And it is a purse. I work part-time at Glad Creations in Minneapolis, MN. Here is a link to their website, It is a great shop and I love it. I even loved it enough to make a shop sample of a purse. Well I guess it is really more of a bag. It is made using 5 asian fabrics and the "Grids and Grommets" pattern by Indygo Junction.

I made the Large Jelly Roll version. I think it turned out well. If you want to check out it out in person, come to the shop. I'll be there tomorrow, so I may even be modelling it.

Hi Nate!
I purchased this pattern after seeing your awesome final project!

My fabric is cut and ready to sew. I have yet to purchase the fusible fleece though.

Do I need to use the fusible fleece or would regular fleece work? I don't see where to adhere it to anything. Or does the fusible fleece give it more stabilization? Please give me your take on this.

Thanks so much for your help with this project.
