Sewing pros: Quick acrylic question


Recommended Posts

I have always used fusible-fleece backed cotton to make my purses, but a customer just selected a heavy-duty outdoor acrylic fabric for the exterior of her new purse, as opposed to cotton. I don't think I've ever worked with acrylic. Can I still use fusible fleece to back it? Is it any more difficult to sew? (I haven't touched the actual fabric yet. She selected it from my fabric supplier on ebay.) I think she's a mountain climber/biker/hiker so I'm sure she chose this fabric for its durability.
