What are you most proud of? I added a side grab handle for leverage to zip open the bag. The zipper pull contains some of the red/purple/orange polymer beads I made, and strung on a black cord "shoe string" and embellished a bit more with some seed beads, and brass charms from my jewerly junk drawer. Fun look, and makes the zipper ride like a roller coaster. Wheeeee! I added red, yellow, and purple buttons for contrast, and red embroidery floss running stitches around the pockets.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take time to have a cup of tea--especially when you stick yourself with a pins several times in a row. I must have been in quite a flurry of excitement putting this laptop together. Scraped myself good with pins today. I had three cups of tea!

Fabulous bag! Love the construction and the all the fun little buttons and beads. The entire thing is just so very unique! As for pin pokes, I know just what you mean. I seem to wind up bleeding at least once with every major project. lol
