What materials did you use? I used quilting cotton, one of which I bought at JoAnn's and one that I bought from a friend of my daughter's on Etsy. Also used some heavy duty Timtex-type stabilizer and 2 zippers.

What are you most proud of? I have watched Shoestring's contributions to Craftsy and drooled over all the bags/purses she makes and wanted to make my own. I did not use a pattern, just the shape of an old favorite purse, then added piping from the lining, which I had never done.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My biggest regret is that I did not make a pattern from the pieces I cut prior to sewing them together. I have received many comments and requests from friends to make one for them, but I am not sure that I could duplicate it.
