I am in love with this piece. I love the fabric, and the weight of the bag. I was so excited while sewing I missed every opportunity to add the outside zipper, tabs for handles and even a magnetic closer. :) I did manage to align my side seams perfectly as well as add a zipper pocket and slot pockets to the lining. Overall it was fun. Thank you Brett for teaching this class. I have learned to make notes of the things I should do before I sew the exterior pieces together.

You sound like an experienced sewer who has put this on as a joke! NOT funny!

Hi, no I am not experienced. This actually was my first time attempting to make a bag with zippers and tabs for straps. I got so into watching how to construct the bag on the video segment until I realized I missed including the zipper and handles. I am going to try this again but I will be sure to take my time and think it through. Thanks for commenting.

This reminds me of mine! I love this fabric! Show more pix when handles are on!

Even though you missed some steps, I appreciate you sharing the learning experience! I can see myself doing the same thing. ;)
