This was a learning curve. Great lessons from Annie. Easy to follow. I have never stitched vinyl and mesh before. Not experienced at putting in zippers, I am a quilter not a sewer. The mesh is recycled from a broken mesh playpen that my dogs used to use. This took me a few days to make. I found it easier as it went along although the binding on the outside was a challenge. I now have a unique bag for my quilting stuff to take to workshops and quilting group.
