What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut 2 pieced of lightweight card stock, 6" x 2.25" and 6" x 1.75" to use as templates when doing the card slots. You can iron straight over them without having to remove them 1st. I got my card slots done in 8 minutes each strip using this method. Also, The tutorial says to measure down 6.25" to trim the coin pocket before assembling, but the PDF says 6", do the 6" or it will be too big for the purse. I also recommend making the notes section a good deal deeper for added security for your paper money.
