What are you most proud of? That I was able to not only make the zippered pocket (interior) but that I was able to fix a mistake I made!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure to cut very accurate pieces and seams. Also, be sure to have a VERY STRONG machine needle as you'll need it!

Love your fabric choices! I was debating on purchasing this pattern & your tote has convinced me. Thanks for sharing!

Have you made this yet?

I just love this bag. It is awesome. Love that you made it for breast cancer as I am a survivor.

I am a 5+ year survivor myself and this was a selfish sewing project for me! :-)

I dont have a sewing machine???? Can this project be done by hand????

No, you will definitely need a machine, and one with strong needles like a denim/microtex one.

can you post an inside picture?

My "middle/second" photo is of the inside. It shows the contrasting pocket with zipper. Do you want to see something else? The other side of the interior is "blank" - no pocket. Next time I will add a slip pocket to that side, though.

I am lost trying to sew this project. I've quilted my two sides, sewed them together, and folded in half (wrong sides together. Now this is where I get lost. It says to sew the binding to the folded edge. With wrong sides together, that would mean that the flowered fabric (2) would be on the inside and main fabric (1) would be on the outside. However, in the picture it shows sewing it to the flowery fabric, which is (2). I've sewn it and ripped it both ways and can't make sense of it. Help!
