|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? 1 1/2 yard double-sided pre-quilted cotton fabric, 1 cotton quarter, fusible fleece, purchased flower trim, thread, sewing machine with walking foot, 9 inch zipper, magnetic clasp, notions
What are you most proud of? My sewing seems to be improving! I have great confidence as a knitter, not so much as a sewist, but I'm proud that with hard work and practice, my sewing is starting to look pretty good!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? First of all I recommend this class and also the class on Bag Making Basics. These two classes gave me a terrific foundation for moving forward with my own designs. I HIGHLY suggest you use a walking foot and heavy weight needle! The money I spent on the walking foot has made a huge difference in the ease and outcome of all my tote bag projects and the heavy weight needle easy glides through the multiple layers of fabric.
