What was your inspiration?
The Life Reimagined Project that YouTube, AARP and some other partners have launched in a test phase. It's a place where you can network and interact with others who are looking to do something different with their lives. Whether its a passion you've always had and never knew how to pursue it or if you are someone who is looking for a totally new career change. Check it out at: www.lifereimaginedproject.org
What are you most proud of?
How easy it is to make!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Keep the iron on dry and at medium heat and take your time fusing the bags- don't scorch them.
Make sure your measurements are exact and that you sew really close to the edges otherwise your cards may not fit.
Always audition one of your cards before sewing the pockets down to make sure you made the pockets large enough.
