What materials did you use? Leather for the exterior and linen for the interior

What are you most proud of? I think it probably is that I acrually made a bag I can be proud of and then of course it is the interior zipper. . :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the craftsy course and just give it a go and enjoy every minute of it. I promise you - it is a great feeling to be able to tell people who ask you where you've bought that bag - I've made it!! The only thing I may not do for my first handbag project is to choose leather as the main material.. It's difficult to work with.. Make at least one bag in another materila first...

I love, love, love this bag in the pink leather. I haven't tried my hand with leather yet, but this is inspiring. Good job!

thanks again for all your great comment! It is so much fun and encouraging when someone else look at your work from an "outside perspective" and tell you that they like it. I just have to one more time encourage all of you who hasn't taken Bretts craftsy course "design your own handbag" to do that. I promise you that you will get so inspired and get so many tips that you can't not design your own handbag. It's so much fun. I have made about 20 diffrent bags and purses since the course and I just love it!!

Oh, very lovely bag! Do you have any tips for sewing with leather for us? I just made a bag with faux leather, okay vinyl, and as much as I love it, I'm tempted to try a leather or suede bag next! I certainly had some challenges sewing the vinyl, and wonder if leather would be even more difficult.
