What materials did you use? I used black drill, a cotton lining, a jacket zip and a printable fabric sheet for the photo

What are you most proud of? Getting it right! Unpicked quite a lot, the zip was tricky, had to walk away a few times. Could easily have left it without the zip but if it is used for evening, I would like to think personal items are safer with the zip. I am proud of the whole thing. The photo, The message inside, It looks great, I am very pleased with it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Persevere!!! No this was easy - except for the zip. But I have sewn it in about four times today and I think I now know what I am doing.

I used a special fabric that you can print on from your own computer printer. It has paper backing which helps it go through the printer. Google printable fabric sheets, you can buy them online. Once you print the photo, peel the back off and it just like fabric you can sew. It's great I have used it for special gifts.

I didn't use a pattern, it is just a tote bag. You can see how it looks in the photo, make an outer an a linig the same. Sew some handles and put them all together..
