What are you most proud of? I love how the pumpkins pop against the purple fabric! They compliment one another much better than I thought. I also noticed I'm starting to get the hang of doing corners. :) I like how most of these turned out... They're getting easier -- especially after picking up a couple of tricks.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I like what the designer said: use a solid color for the lining -- it will help you see the items in the tray. The instructions don't say it, but I'm going to try using starch on the fabric. I don't like how my edges are bowed (and I stitched it very straight). I think the starch will help (another tip I picked up from another project....).

Thanks! It's a handy little thing. The designer intended it for hotel rooms - stow your small things so they don't get lost. Easy to pack. I thought it would be equally useful in a college dorm. :)
