What are you most proud of? I usually try to use fabric from my stash (mostly remnants) but I realised that was stifling me and often results in me making things that are not quite right. This time I went out and bought lovely fabric and all the correct size/colour zips, fusible wading etc. and the results are lovely

What advice would you give someone starting this project? ditch your stash! Also, when I was stitching over the zipper, I moved the wheel by hand and then I was able to wiggle the needles over the zipper teeth.

LOL I love your ditch your stash advice! Excellent advice in this case... you chose gorgeous fabric and your bags have turned out great! Very snazzy indeed!

So so cute- you made excellent fabric choices. You did a wonderful job! I'm sure whoever you give these to will be very happy with them.
