What materials did you use? fabric, canvas, zippers, nylon webbing for the handles.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the instructions carefully before sewing to determine which pieces are cut from which fabric. Also, be sure to use a heavy Jeans needle for sewing through all the layers! The bag works great on luggage that has 2 bars in the handle pull. It doesn't work on my luggage that has only a 1 bar handle. I left off the pop-up pocket because there were already too many layers to sew through and I doubt I would use it. And, if I was going to put some sort of electronic in the computer pocket, I would want to use Soft & Stable or some sort of foam padding to protect the device. The pocket is too small for my computer so I left it out. Blogged at
