2.Thermolam is fleece, but it is a needled fleece, which means it is denser and lies flat. It has a ton of uses.
If I'm making a smaller quilted project like a mini quilt, mug rug, or oven mitts, I use Thermolam before I quilt the project.
It eliminates the need for using pins or spray baster.

Another great use for fusible fleece is that you can cut small squares of it (approximately 2″ x 2″) to reinforce a magnetic snap that you might be using in your bag.
Every time you open and close a magnetic snap, it puts pressure on your fabric.
To resist against everyday wear-and-tear, slide the prongs of your snap through your fabric, and then put the square of fleece on top before you close the prongs.
You shouldn’t have any worries about your fabric tearing under the strain of the magnetic snap now!
