What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay close attention to every detail and replay lesson segments often. If details and memory are challenging for you, mark each piece of cut fabric with the fabric letter "A," "B," or "C" as well as the purpose of the piece, e.g., "Exterior Pocket." Always leave an extra cut of each piece behind so you can just trace them to make more bags. Once you get the hang of it, you'll want to make more!
