I finished a weekender from Ikea fabric just waiting for good use!  I'm so excited!  Just in time for my friend who is about to move to DC.  She'll get this one as a going away gift.

   

I added a zip and panel pocket on the inside.  I made sure to line up the design on the front and back, and inside the zip pocket.  It was fun to make, a bit of a pain at times (literally when I stuck myself with pins).   I would have to say that attaching the lining was the biggest hassle, but I'm already planning my next one.
