Zip To It Bag

What are you most proud of? That I finished it at all! Although I've made a number of bags this was quite a challenge. It's not perfect but I like it anyway. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have plenty of time and patience and a walking foot for your machine. I used Flex Foam because I like the support and finish it gives to a bag, but it probably made the task more difficult especially at the corners/zipper ends.
