  1. This looks awesome! I just bought the pattern! Am so excited to start making these for Christmas and eventually birthdays/baby showers. I am having a hard time finding fusible felt interfacing. Do you by chance recommend a certain type or have a link? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Kris,

      thanks! I buy interfacing and batting locally, but depending on where you live, you could try out the Pellon fusible fleece for crafting, or Thermoweb's Heat&Bond. Have a great day,

  2. Walmart carries Pellon fusible fleece

  3. Can't beat reusable fabric bags for gifting, Damjana. Looks like a great pattern.
