Of course not! But I saw this pattern and medley in Keepsake Quilting and just had to do it. It called for Pellon Fusible Fleece, which I had never used before. It's like a light batting that can be ironed on. The pattern backed everything with it - the outside, the handles, and the lining. Oh, the pocket inside, too. I opted to do only the outside and am happy with the choice. It went a lot faster and it has body but isn't super stiff. If anyone wants to make one, I have Fusible Fleece left to share.
