What are you most proud of? Well I AM proud that I lost that weight! I'm also pleased that thanks to Kristin's excellent instruction, along with the printed class materials, I was able to apply what I learned to come up with my own tweak of her design.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely take Kristin's class!!! Make a tote or two according to her instructions, then try your own adaptation of the design.

Thank you! Had fun making it and if I continue to lose the 20 more pounds I need to lose, I'll be making lots more totes!

Thank you! I have now lost 40 pounds and have more jeans and some Tshirts and blouses to play with. So I'm thinking of other ways to re-purpose these.
