Thank you, Pam for your positive comment. I feel there's a long way to go yet, though. I' ll have to continue practising...

Very nice! I love the personalized leather label and the leather sections at the bottom. It looks great! :)

The bottom is not really leather... It's a leather-looking piece of fabric a friend gave me. She was going to throw it away!!!
