    I haven't made it yet but I would say the fleece would just make it a little thicker. I have the pattern and looked at it a couple of times but haven't yet taken the time to make it. Working with the fusible fleece on some other tote bags I would say that is the only difference is durability, strength and thickness. Good Luck.

      Fusible fleece is a fleece that you iron on. If you want I think you could use a quilt batting and maybe quilt it to the front fabric to hold it in place. I made a bag with it, and wondered if I needed it as well. It made it bulkier to sew, where just a heavy weight fusible web or interfacing would have gave the purse the strength to hold it shape. Let us know what you do.

        I have made the Bow Tuck purse. It makes the purse a little stiffer to hold it's shape. I prefer a handbag that way. It also gives you some "puffing" like batting so you can quilt the purse.
