What advice would you give someone starting this project? I make up my own pattern for the lining because I had already made another bag. Once you know how to make the box corners - it is easy. This was my second effort at a tote bag. The first was rather small - so I used a variation of the original pattern (http://bloomandblossom.blogspot.com.au) to make a larger one. The straps on this tote are a little too wide. My next bag will have longer & narrower straps.

The bag is beautiful and I am sure your sister will treasure it
