There's no such thing as too many pockets when it comes to bags. Whether it be on the outside, or the inside, pockets make it easier to keep everything contained and in the right place. And pockets with a zipper, even better.

What is it that makes a sewing project successful?
An item that looks like the original pattern or tutorial, is technically correct and looks good. One that receives lots of compliments. Perhaps a new technique tackled and another skill added to the repertoire. A new design where everything falls into place. A difficult project that comes together after much hard work. Or simply the fact that it's finished, mistakes and all.

I recently sewed up a darling little dress for a yet to be born baby. Presented in a reusable gift bag, this was my contribution for the baby shower.
