I am so excited! I just finished my first bag and I think it turned out pretty well. I had a really hard time with the hidden inner pockets (I did two instead of one) and they aren't perfect but they are alright (I think it is because I downloaded a free pattern and the instructions weren't great). I also learned that I have a horrible whip stitch - the bottom of the inside of the bag looks like a 5 year old sewed it. But I love the fabric and I love how big the bag is so overall I think it was a success.
