What are you most proud of? The recessed zippers. Zippers have scared me silly for years but after taking another Craftsy course, "Quilt as You Go Patchwork Bags" I have learned that zippers are not scary and actually kind of easy!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go through the course entirely and for my learning style, I had an open "Word" window and took notes of the instructions to have by my sewing machine so I wasn't running up and down stairs so much. I also took some screen shots which I found useful.

Great job on your first bag! Love the placement of the fabric on the pocket flap. And so glad to hear you're finding that zippers can be fun! I agree! :)
