What are you most proud of? I tried a new "cushy" foam handle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Always make a prototype first! Saves lots of headaches and stress! :)

Your bag looks excellent. I love the topstitching, the ticking lining, and the metal zipper on the internal pocket. I must get round to doing this class soon.

First of all I love the color! And your strap is very pretty with the double stitching in the middle that meets the rivets on each side. Your sewing table seems very organized, something I need to do better at. Very professional looking!
