What was your inspiration?
The free video class on bag making and admiring everyone else's finished projects.
What are you most proud of?

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Apply the circular bottom of the bag and lining slowly and carefully, checking every few inches to make sure you don't get any tucks in the fabric. A walking foot used on the pocket and stitched rows of the handle keeps the fabric nice and smooth.
