Wow, these are really cute and awesome workmanship ! I have been wanting to attempt this very bag, I sometimes have issues with zippers ...ugh !! I actually bought a bunch of them real cheap to pratice with, LOL !! You used your serger.....? yep, I do use mine too. I don't leave might out , so I must admit, that sometimes I just forget that I have it !

This project was part of a "Beginner Serger" class offered by Craftsy, so I really wanted to use my new serger for this project.

Wow! That is one very unhappy needle- I can't believe it didn't break! Yes, batting is a bit more difficult to serge, because there are many more fibers that the needles have to fight against. But, I love the way the bags look with it! The polka dots are adorable (as are the kitties).
