What are you most proud of? I haven't put in a zipper in ages. I did the larger bag first and it came out great! Also, i got good practice quilting. I really like creating my own designs. Found out that my gift of the smaller, green bag is going to be used as a wallet. So I made a bigger one for makeup. See my bagster 2 design.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm always afraid my sewn gifts are 'homemade' and not perfect. But friends seem so touched that I made something especially for them. I really analyze what their style is when I choose the fabric and colors. The inside is just as pretty as outside.
