Except for the false bottom, my Weekender bag is completely finished. I made some alterations to the inside of the bag like I did on the outside. I put in a zipper pocket and another pocket on the other side. I interfaced all my pieces with medium weight interfacing since I didn't use home decor weight fabric like th pattern called for. I also didn't handstitch it in, I machine stitched it around the zipper, I wasn't concerned with the stitching showing on the outside. I did tack it in along the seams to keep it from flopping around. I am so happy with this bag! I am already planning on making another one, that is how much I love it!
If you make one of your own I would love to see it!
