What advice would you give someone starting this project? Oh no! Don't forget to snip the threads! :)

Yaaaaay! It's wonderful! I like how the zigzags in your fabric continue across the bag, almost meeting perfectly across the zipper. You did a great job!

I was going to say the same thing Amy did! I would not have been brave enough to try a line like that, but it looks so cool I might have to try now!

Thank you very much! It was fun and pretty easy. I can see how to parlay these techniques into other uses like purses. Instead of tabs sew in a handle or shoulder strap. And for a tote bag you can box out the bottom!! Voila!

OMG I think Iearned something. PS I love how the serger just cruises over the thick layers no trouble...FUN!
