What materials did you use? Cottons and batics to feature a block that I wanted to include in the design, Now to make the rest for the quilting group I belong to....

What are you most proud of? The design of the additional fabric worked well. Zippers went in easily after the neat trick in the course. And so I was able to make one for each of the ladies in my quilt group!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider some fun use of fabrics and size alterations. Children would love these for school supplies, small toys, etc. Another consideration when putting the zipper in. I unzipped the top down a bit so it didn't interfere when starting to add the zipper and again when topstitching - even with the zipper foot attached. Then just before I came to it, I stopped, pulled the presser foot up, turned the fabric to reach it and zipped it past where I was, and continued to finish the edge. For me, it seemed to make it a cleaner and straigher seam edge.
