What was your inspiration?
A Thomas the Tank Engine fanatic fan :)
What are you most proud of?
I managed to have right-side up Thomas and installed the chunky zipper :D
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I tried two different things with this bag... chunky zipper and non-refusible interface.
My lessons learnt is that chunky zipper is difficult to sew in the ends... probably best to do as a top zipper style with ends hanging out, instead tucking them in. As for the non-refusible interface, I'd have to say, I prefer the fusible interface, they require less pins to pin them in place :D
