Sabrina S asked:
Beautiful fabric, and it looks extremely well made! I agree that a zip is a very good idea...
Davesmom answered:
The bag turned out very nice for a first time project. If I were doing another one for me, I would add a couple of zipped pockets inside as well as the outside. This bag is the same color inside and I found it quite dark for me; next time I would choose a lighter fabric to make finding things easier.
