What materials did you use? I used an old table runner for the bag, the strap is made from a vintage Hawaiian shirt, inside I crafted a durable large pocket out of an old couch cover, the fringe, buttons and details are all old, repurposed pieces-buttons, Tibetan coin, abalone accents from a necklace. The only thing I used that was new was the thread!

What are you most proud of? How free spirited it looks. Its one of a kind and I love that.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Create and design as you go. I focus on each step and what feels right, then settle in on design. I always listen to the fabric.
