Very nice bag, your friend will be very happy with it! I love a tote bag with a top zip...good idea using the stronger zipper! Very cute print!

Beautiful fabric, and it looks extremely well made! I agree that a zip is a very good idea...

The bag turned out very nice for a first time project. If I were doing another one for me, I would add a couple of zipped pockets inside as well as the outside. This bag is the same color inside and I found it quite dark for me; next time I would choose a lighter fabric to make finding things easier.

That's all great advice, thank you! I am about to embark on a first project too - but am not too optimistic that it'll turn out quite as well as yours did! Will post when eventually it's done...
