I just used my fusible fleece as an alternative to the padding/batting that is mentioned in the tutorial. Just one layer of this was perfect.
It is not my best piece of work as I found the curves quite tricky but it's all experience!
One was for my sister Gwen (right) and one for Ella (left). They liked them! (After I explained to Gwen the answer to "what do I do with it?" - she never has her lens cap on her..)
