What materials did you use? Exterior is painted linen with painted denim trim. I used grommets, studs, hooks and feet in nickel finish to mimic the trim. Interior is nylon. I really like nylon as a lining as it is durable and crisp looking.

What are you most proud of? I am pretty happy with this bag and will make another one in a smaller size. Not sure I would change much. I added the charm just for more gilt.

Really Like Your Bag!! I am looking to do something similar as well. My question- where did you purchase your grommets- and are these the ones with the screws? The trinket key chain is adorable as well- did you make? Great inspiration!!

Thank you so much. Those are just drapery grommets and just snap together. I wanted better quality but could not find any locally and truly, these are fine. Yes the charm is made to suit the bag. Most of my bags are for fundraising and I add one to each bag. Sometimes two friends take the bag away and makes the charm for me. It is fun to collaborate that way.
