Hello Selestine! What a snazzy bag - nice job all around. I've found that it is very helpful to trim away the seam allowances for any/all of the interfacing if it is an iron on, or to baste sew-on interfacing to the fabric in a 1/2" seam allowance, then trim away the extra interfacing. This will cut down greatly on the bulk of the seams. The same suggestion would be made for any fleece, if the pattern calls for it. Also, pressing seam allowances open wherever you can will also reduce the bulk. For the inside bottom of the bag, I have used plexiglass cut to fit. It can be taken out whenever the bag needs to be washed - you can even cover the plexiglass with a fabric sleeve if you wish! Again, great job! Marsha *<*

Wow! Thank you so much for those suggestions Marsha. I never thought to trim away the seam allowance on the interfacing, and now I can make the second bag and keep it just as plush and snuggly! Thank you, thank you! And thank you all for the fabric comments, too ^_^
