What are you most proud of? Didn't give when I ran into issues. My bag isn't perfect and I have to overlook the imperfection...definitely room for improvements for my next bag!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get thinner hide if possible. I really pushed my sewing machine to its limit.

I didn't. Think you could embroider on leather. Wow what a nice touch!

Beautiful. Your bag is perfect because you did not give up when you ran into issues which I like to call happy mistakes.
