What are you most proud of? The beaded pattern which made the necessary seam in the middle of the purse look like it was on purpose!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Draw everything out before you begin to cut so you are sure you have enough "fabric". Don't be afraid to go a little crazy with your creativity as felted wool is very forgiving and hides a LOT of mistakes. :)
