Read the instructions carefully before sewing to determine which pieces are cut from which fabric. Also, be sure to use a heavy Jeans needle for sewing through all the layers! The bag works great on luggage that has 2 bars in the handle pull. It doesn't work on my luggage that has only a 1 bar handle. I left off the pop-up pocket because there were already too many layers to sew through and I doubt I would use it. And, if I was going to put some sort of electronic in the computer pocket, I would want to use Soft & Stable or some sort of foam padding to protect the device. The pocket is too small for my computer so I left it out. Blogged at http://bloominworkshop.wordpress.com/2014/08/20/ready-set-where-shall-we-go/
