What materials did you use? synthetic cord

What are you most proud of? 1. I worked with a material I never had before and although it had its difficulties it turn out so great 2. I messed with the pattern a little (as far as the increasing and decreasing) to get the result I wanted (a little "more sack-than-bag") but I got away with it 3. the bag doesn't have any lining inside - the cord is really sturdy and it holds perfectly - but I wanted inside pockets (they don't appear in the photo, but they're there) so I used pockets from a safari pair of trousers and I hand sew them inside - it worked! - another thing I got away with

What advice would you give someone starting this project? 1. if you use thick plastic cord (like I did) don't forget the silicone tube for your fingers - it really saves your fingers from scratching 2. don't be afraid to tighten the cord when every dc is finished (don't work sc in this one - dc is the best stitch and you'll finish a lot faster) - it will end up in giving your bag a firm hold when its finished - no lining needed 3. if thick plastic cord is your material of choice, make sure you tie your cord in the end of the round and begin the next a few stitches before or after the closing - because the cord is a hard medium, beginning at the same stitch (like almost every project you work in the round) will give an uneven stretch at that point - believe me, you don't want that 4. pace yourself - plastic cord is not like working with yarn - you'll get an hour of work but then stop (even if you don't feel your hands tired - it sneaks up on you and you'll feel it all the way up to your neck and shoulders)
