What materials did you use? I upcycled using my husband's frayed Docker's pants ( cotton twill ).

What are you most proud of? That with the high contrast fabrics I chose, the side seams matched up so nicely! Also that the weight of the twill gives the tote a lot of body without having to use interfacing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Print out the instructions and take notes or highlight the steps on your printout while watching the video, then read them through before each step at your sewing machine. I didn't do this when sewing and stitched when I should have pressed when sewing the handles. I don't have my computer and my sewing machine in the same part of my house, so I didn't take online notes.
