Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing
pjfelton on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? 3oz turquoise leather, 2oz black leather, lightweight tightly woven upholstery fabric for lining, 20in brass jacket zipper

What are you most proud of? The inside zipper pocket came out really well, and the other pockets compliment the space, however I had to modify the top edge and make it much wider because I placed the two small pockets too high, and they interfered with the rolled edge. It still looks amazing. I hear you, Don, saying "you are the designer"......

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The only advice I can give is be patient, go slow and careful, accuracy first, speed will come naturally after the first few bags. All mistakes are learning experiences.
