What are you most proud of? It is a simple project for a beginner like me. I have 2 daughters and thought that it was perfect for them to have their own bag to carry around. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used 2 pieces of 1/2 yard fabric and it was easier to cut the long strips for the drawstrings in one piece. With the two pieces, it was kind of hard to turn that area. It also allowed me to have the drawstrings in the fabric of the lining which I like.
