I had a tutorial with Tom. He said the fabric of my design was to slippy, especially the white fabric, too shiny and looked cheap. He gave a really good advice that for the joining part I could use toggle instead of button. 

Then I also talked to Georgia about my test model. She said similar thing as well. The fabric I got was slippy, shinny, which made this product look cheap. Because my design is really simple, it needs to be done better. She also said the fabric I got from the market was too cute, these pattern will make this product look too cheap and comic way. 

I went to the shop tutor recommended called rolls & rems. She asked me to look at some natural fabrics like cotton. It should be plain, no stretch. Some fabrics like canvas, drill, twill and thin denim. Maybe I could ask them to give me some samples of a range. Instead of covering the button by my self, I could buy some self covering buttons, which will help me sew my things look better and make it easier to be finished. About the toggle, I should make one by myself or I can buy one.
