What materials did you use? Quilting cotton leftovers from my closet.

What are you most proud of? I inadvertently bought large-tooth zippers and was able to develop a solution to use them without breaking anything.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you aren't sure of yourself, don't be afraid to machine baste with your traditional machine to hold layers in place. Practicing with swatches on the serger and playing with tensions also helped.

Love the "Cars" fabrics! That would be such a great toy bag gift for kids. Zippers look really great. I want to experiment with cool zippers. This inspires me.
