What materials did you use? 2 x cotton fat quarters for each bag 18 inch zipper fusible fleece

What are you most proud of? That I have learned from my mistakes! On the first bag I didn't quite catch all the fabric when stitching the sides and on the second bag I decided to use a longer zip which makes it easier to feed into the machine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take care to enclose all the fabric into the seams and take great care with the ends of the zipper - I tried to cut it on the serger and it got stuck!

Adorable! I love that you kept with it and made a second one to work on your technique. Nice job!
