What are you most proud of? I love that I actually gave sewing a second chance. My high school sewing class many moons ago, which I almost failed, left me rather traumatized :-D I dreaded the class: knotted bobbin threads, bunched up fabric and broken needles all the time! This is my first time to sew something again in 20 years. Kristin's instruction is so clear that my jaw dropped when I turned the bag inside out. I was simply AMAZED that the form and structure of the bag came out absolutely fine! :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're a total beginner, invest in a very good machine with basic features. I just got my Janome yesterday and I'm glad I listened to online advice. For a beginner, this made life very easy for me. Oh, and choose thick enough fabric so the patterns don't show through from the fabric on the other side :)
