What materials did you use? Home Decor Cotton Twill, Poly /Silk Lining, Silver Hardware magnetic snaps, D rings and feet. Plastic for interior bottom.

What are you most proud of? That I completed the bag. I found it very challenging and had to rip out the lining twice due to my own mistakes. The shoulder straps should have been a bit narrower, I decided to leave it but if bothers me I will redo them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go ahead and try it. If you have never made a bag before the Free Class on Tote Bags would be a help. Don't give up even if you have to redo parts of your work.

This bag is absolutely stunning!! Your project is so neat, tidy, and a truly simplistic beautiful design. Classy!
