What materials did you use? I used medium weight upholstery fabric, with heavy weight twill for the trim and handles.

What are you most proud of? I have received so many compliments on this bag, and several people have already asked me to make one for them.

Thank all of you! I have made several more bags, one I am posting tonight. As I make each bag, I am making a pattern for future use. I have alreay sold 3 bags, and starting on another one! I think I have found my niche. I am practicing using different weight fabrics, and using rivets. Thank you so much for this class!
