What are you most proud of? Coming up with the idea of the rings. I sort of messed up when sewing them on and snipped into the drawstring.... But I was tired and didn't want to start over on them but I think they are functional and will be fine. I may go back and cut them off and re-do it yet.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The drawstrings are actually the hardest part. I used some twine to anchor and pull the ends through. I pinned all along the twine. I then used a seam ripper to push the end in to get it started. That is the most aggravating thing. I still have trouble closing the hole after turning them inside out. I always end up with a wrinkle cos the hole is too wide. I don't know how to fix that
