What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sew your tabs a bit more up than I did mine. The way I did it, the handles have a bit of a problem to curve.

There's quite a few things I love about this bag...the style and color goes without saying (gorgeous!), the Asian theme, and last but not least, the bag's name (Bag "Kaori")! Did you know "Kaori" means fragrance in Japanese? I named my daughter Caori, changing the K to a C, that's how I know, lol. Oh! Looks like you've gotten over your fear of zippers, YAY!
