What are you most proud of? That I finished it! This is a LOT of work, I LOVE the result, but I'm not sure I'd tackle it again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can see the result is really neat, pick colors you like and have at it.. it's not hard, just time consuming. For everyone who has asked, you can get a pattern for this from www.clotilde.com, they have lots of patterns for clothesline items including several types of bags/totes. Thanks for the compliments :)

Hi- I made a similar tote and I am baffled on how to attach the cord to the purse (for the closure). I do not have a finished edges - as you do. Any suggestions?

Hi, you could do a couple of things, sew it on as I did, and cover the ends with buttons, or use those great big grommets to make a hole in the bag and feed the handles through and tie a big knot in the end...

I make totes and baskets, but they are rounds and ovals. I like this up/down concept! You did a very lovely job on it!
