What are you most proud of? I am proud of the simplicity of the project i have created and hopefully the manageability of it for those who are just becoming interested in sewing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice makes perfect and this is a good project to help learn the sewing basics. The zipper isn't sewn like a zipper usually would but i have made this method to try and help those starting out to be able to make projects that they can use. You can be very creative with this project and it is very versatile as there is no set pattern so have fun. Happy Crafting :)
