What are you most proud of? I am proud I completed it in less than two hours!! It was the first time I have ever used a serger and the first time I have ever inserted a zipper!

While not perfect by any means, I love it. I cut the fabric the wrong way; being a quilter I usually know better. I just got over excited and cut away.

I wasn't paying attention and serged my zipper on to the long edge and ended up with a long shallow corner bag. I still love mine too. :)
