What are you most proud of? Most proud of the fact that I could incorporate some of my (limited) quilting skills into the making of this bag. Also proud that I saved a ton of money by purchasing my leather handles from thrift store. Only $3.00 for straps and hardware.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to make a tote using a layer cake or a charm pack. The various colors really make it pop. Also take a trip to the purse section in your local Goodwill. Recycle those old purses by salvaging the hardware/straps even some of the inside pockets and zippers. I cut the pockets out and give them a gentle wash and wipe the handles down with germ killing handwipes.
