What are you most proud of? The addition of my water bottle holder into the bag. If I'm going to carry the bag with me it has to be functional. I don't want to have a bunch of stuff in there and have to be searching around for my water bottle. Also it helps keep it upright so it doesn't spill. Also the installation of the zipper pocket, it was easy and I definitely need practice, my corners puckered pretty bad but I don't think anyone else will care but me :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take you time for sure. The binding was the worst part for me, I don't like it and will probably use the machine/hand stitch method for the next bag. Tara wasn't lying when she said that sewing the binding would be a lesson in awkwardness, it's totally awkward and can be frustrating if you're trying to rush things.
