What materials did you use? I used faux suede, cotton, fusible fleece and a 18 inch separating zipper

What are you most proud of? Figuring out a few alternative ways to making this bag easier than what it already was the first time!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just take your time and take the serger class for beginners. I wasn't a beginner and even I learned a few new things.

I do a lot of machine embroidery and I have a serger, but I am intimidated by threading it. I need some encouragement.

I used to be afraid of serger until I got my cover stitch machine. Then the serger was a piece of cake. :). I just kept trying and pulling out my manual. When one thread broke or needed to be retread then I'd retread all of my spools. Practice makes perfect. Good Luck!

I think the design is great but it would look nicer if it was centered properly.

Thank you. This pattern didn't have lines so I agree and this was one of my first embroideries .. :). I'm still on the learning process. But as I learn I like to share tips as well. Alough my brother still loved it.

Awesome job adding the embroidery! The colour of the material and the gold thread compliment each other really well!
