What advice would you give someone starting this project? I accidentally cut off the top of my zipper instead of the bottom while trimming it down. But, since Amy suggests a much larger zipper than you need I was able to snip the bottom off and put back on the zipper head without taking anything apart. I also wanted my bag to lay a little flatter so after I boxed the corners I made two connecting serge lines longways on the bag to create "seams" on the outside of the bag bottom.

What great color choices! Those blue mirror ball dots are great paired with the orange lining. I like that you boxed out the lining a little more too. Great job of adjusting the bag to make it your own!
