What are you most proud of? The zippered pockets, hands down. I have always been a little intimidated with the idea of sewing a zipper but it was so easy and they look so good! The was the quickest I ever finished a course and I did finish it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't choose too heavy of a material for the bag bottem. I did, thinking that it would make a nice, sturdy bottom but it was actually too heavy to completely sew in the boxed corners.

It looks great! What fabric did you use for the bottom that was so hard to work with?

it was a HEAVY upholstery fabric, next one will be lighter.

I love your fabric selections - especially the flap fabric, the acid green fabric next to it, and the technicolor floral...also the binding. Your bag is beautiful!
