What are you most proud of? That the vision in my head made it out into reality. It was worth all the brainstorming sessions, pin stabbings, and late nights to have my kids pack themselves for trips. Happy kids, happy mama.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is an intimidating project, but the pattern breaks it down into manageable chunks. This is totally doable by an intermediate sewist who wants to stretch their sewing wings a bit more.

What a charming idea. Your little one's will certainly be traveling in style. This is a wonderful teaching tool for children. It is a great way for them learn to accept responsibility for their clothing and other travel necessities. Your sewing expertise is masterful as shown in the detail of these authentic luggage pieces.

I've sewn heaps of different types of techniques, but I've never sewn a zipper on the curve. Is it a hard technique?

The zipper is actually sewn to the zipper facings "flat". No need to sew the zipper itself to the curve.
