What are you most proud of? The durability of it. The reinforced strap is really holding up to everything I put in it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used newspaper and tape to make a prototype to see how big I wanted it and how long the strap had to be. From there I made the pattern. This way the size was guaranteed to be what I wanted.

Thank you! Good luck with your bag! Using the newspaper and tape made making the pattern really easy!
