My zipper tape with pulls, strap webbing, and 3/8" elastic all showed up yesterday. All I really had time to do was make the zippers, but now I'm ready to start sewing.

I need two 8" zippers, one 11" zipper, and one 24" zipper with kissing zipper pulls for the main compartment. I put the pull on, and then measure them out an extra inch for seam allowances. The lighter is to stop the tape from fraying after it's cut.
