What materials did you use? Two fat quarters, a zipper and fusible fleece. I used my Singer Stylist Serger (14SH764) which struggled a little to get through all the layers and zipper, but it made it through.

What are you most proud of? Not giving up. I struggled with my serger ... especially with the thread coming out of the left needle and going over the layers of fabric, but I finished it. It has some flaws, but hopefully I can get better the next one I make.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't give up!

I think you did a great job, despite your machine not being very happy about it. You might loosen the pressure on your presser foot to give the fabric a bit more room under the foot. Otherwise, keep making them and they'll get easier to whip up! :)
