IF you roll over this pic you will see the zipper isn't centered very well, but it was my first serger project.

I think it is "perfect" just the way it is!! Nice job.

This is a fairly quick project IF your serger co-operates. I love the size of the bag.

It looks great to me. I just finished lesson 2, can't wait to start stitching!

I got bogged down on some of the stitches in Lesson 3 and since my 4-thread overlock was working so well I skipped over to Lesson 6 and made the bag.

Great job! I love the way the fabrics coordinate so nicely. That sushi print is perfect!

Amy, I am about to start on the zipper of my second bag. The first one is a little wonky as you can see if you scroll over the pic. Any tips other than perhaps more pinning?

Yes, I would say use a few more pins, because when you're serging lots of layers, they like to shift. Also you can feel where the zipper coils are with your finger (thru the fabric). Make sure you're keeping your foot and needles an equal distance away from the coils the whole way down the zipper.
