Fusible Woven Interfacing for exterior & interior fabric
Vilene Fusible Fleece H640 for handles
I used much less fabric than the pattern suggested but it was a squeeze and I had cut each inner handle as 3 pieces and piece together which you can see if you click on the picture (I didn't want to do it as 2 pieces and have the join sitting on the shoulder where it might get annoying).
Buttons 40mm (1.5") from All Buttons Great and Small but you can get them for a fraction of the price on Etsy if you've got the time to wait. Also 2" would've worked better.
Next time I would like to put some contrast piping between the band and body to break up the exterior fabric OR just use a solid/third fabric for the band and handles. Also, I might think about using a contrast colour for the topstitching.
