What materials did you use? I used a cast-off Ikea curtain and my mighty brain.

What are you most proud of? I am so very proud that I figured out how to combine a squared off bottom with a comfortable handle that supports the corners of that squared off bottom. I really really feel a great sense of satisfaction to make a project that exceeds my expectations AND is easy to make. Celebrating with coffee even now!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It really does take a yard of fabric, the pattern is incorrect on that topic. You can make something that rolls up into the pocket but the fabric has to be lightweight. You can make a bag from heavy materials that doesn't roll up. I've got some cute print canvas I'm going to use to make a couple for presents. Right after I finish this coffee.
