Well it only took me 6 days to finish it.  My hands are so sore and my sewing machine just booked a vacation away from me!!   Tongue

I did add feet and modified a few steps.  I did a daily log of what all I did on my blog )link in my sigy, but the last installment will not be published until tomorrow.  I had to share the final pic here today though!









I should have tacked the lining up the side seams more than I did, but I forgot.  I also wanted to add a zipper pouch to the lining and forgot to do that too.  Oh well.....maybe next time.

Great job sew-wannabe. I like where you put the feet & the detail you did for the feet where you put an extra strip of fabric - don't know if that's in the instructions or you did it on your own, but it looks great.

I just read your 2 blog entries about your bag. That zipper came out looking great. I'll have to read it again slowly & try to follow it so I can make great looking zippers like that. I also saw what you did w/that detail strip on the bottom & that's a great idea - I love it. Thanks for sharing your blog - I'm trying to start one myself & I hope I can inspire others like you are.

The feet were something I added.  There were no instructions for doing the feet in the package.  I did remember searching a while ago on the net how to install purse feet and this way stuck in my head.  It makes sense to add a little extra peltex right under the tabs to keep them from rubbing a hole.

The zipper was not hard to do.  I think if you search hidden zipper here on craftsters you will find tutorials on this method of blind sewing the zipper in.  Since I was not about to hand sew the lining the whole length of the zipper and just machine stitched it I did end up with 2 stitch lines on the outside of the bag at the zipper.  I am not worried about it.
