Thanks everyone...I just finished my bag. I LOVE it. Just in time too, we are moving next week and taking a month vacation, so it'll come in handy. I think I'll have craft withdrawals!!
It wasn't as bad as I expected. I did make my own piping which I found to be the toughest part along with sewing all the layers together. But as long as I took my time, it wasn't too bad. I didn't put metal feet on it though. I was too worried I'd mess it up...maybe the next one. I'll try to post a picture but I'm not sure how.
