This was a little tough sewing through many layers of fusible fleece so to make this again I would not use the fleece in the outside pockets. I am thinking Deco-bond would work well or a much thinner fleece. I used Pellon 987 (I think that is the number...don't do numbers very well). There is alot of binding on this which really adds to the design but if you are one who doesn't like to do binding, well.....you know.
Just wanted to share a couple of pics of my granddaughter who is almost 8 years old. She has grown up so much this year.
