    Thanks! It’s very light weight, but sturdy because it was originally considered upholstery fabric. After looking at different wool houndstooth fabrics in the store, many with more gray in them than I liked, the shop assistant suggested looking at upholstery fabric. She said a number of her frequent shoppers make purses from upholstery fabric. I was glad I found this pattern in plain black & white. It’s a lot like canvas.
