What materials did you use? Amy Butler fabric, and I iron on vinyl to the lining fabric

What are you most proud of? I used what I had on hand, which wasn't fusible fleece, but craftfuse. I also didn't have a nylon zipper. I think that the zipper was polyester, so I was cautious serging around it. I did need to reinforce the seam with my sewing machine...because I think that I was too cautious :-) I really like it, it is the first time I was able to use my serger on a project without feeling like I didn't understand what to do. Thank you Amy!!!!

Great idea using the iron-on vinyl in the lining. Love the double zip too.

Beautiful! I really love the double pull zipper. How handy! Did you buy a longer zipper to keep the pulls out of the way, or have any issue serging around them?

The zipper was the only one over 7" that I had :-) I was super nervous about serging over them. So much so that I put the end of the zipper on one side so I one had to go thru teeth on one side. I think that I am gonna make another with a shorter zipper and use fabric to extend the length to the end.

That's a good idea!
