Looks fine and clean, maybe add a little patch of loop to the outside to add some sort of id/iff flag wtc

Very nice! Love proofing patterns and nailing it first time. Good work!

Also that angled zip is nice!

Now... tell me more about "Air In A Bag". Could be just the thing I need for photography purposes...

Is the bottom just a single layer 500D that's laser cut? Have you tried that out for durability yet?

Why do you prefer to sew zipper so close to its edges?

Agreed.  The 4 locator holes are for just such a thing.  When proofing out a pattern, I prefer not to expend labor and material on what may be a scrap part.

Thank you!  Air pillow machines make air pillows.  Air pillows are a popular replacement for packing peanuts.

Is the bottom just a single layer 500D that's laser cut? Have you tried that out for durability yet?

Correct.  Durability has not yet been tested as it's not a finished part.  On a finished part, not proofing out a pattern, there would be another layer or two of liner material.

Why do you prefer to sew zipper so close to its edges?

We usually use either .300" or .175" seams depending on the application.  In the case of joining zippers to zipper extensions, we use .300" which allows us to run on standard machines without a specialized foot.
