What are you most proud of? Actually constructing something like this just using a serger! And it was actually not stressful! Pretty fun- I enjoyed making this. :) I hope you don't know me, because if you do, you're looking at what you're getting for Christmas. Surprise.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? BE PATIENT. Take your time to measure and cut. As the saying goes: "Measure twice, cut once." You'll be glad you did. Also, sew slowly. As you become more acquainted with your machine, then you can floor it like you're on the Autobahn. Remember, though, the slower you go, the more control you have. And practice, practice, PRACTICE. There are some things about the bag I'm not happy with, so I will definitely make another one and correct the errors I made first time around. Also, be open to learning new ways of doing things and using what best works for YOU. Just because you learned a certain way, doesn't make other methods wrong. I've been sewing for 15+ years and still learned something new.
