What are you most proud of? The interchangeable sash. I made the purse so I could change out the sash anytime I want a different looking purse without having to switch out my purse.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? After taking this class I realized how easy it was to make any kind of purse I wanted! She lays the concept out very simply, and shows you how to add hardware to make your purse look more professional. Before I made this purse I sketched out exactly what I wanted it to be - including color, pockets, type of handles, the hardware placement, and the complete measurements. I was then able to sew it up in a few hours without any complications :)

I really like this bag. I love the twisted detail on the handles, the way that you can change the scarf detail to match an outfit and the whole look of the bag. I can see the effort & thought that was put into it

Thank you! The handles I actually bought pre-made at Hancocks. I liked them a lot so I decided to use them for this purse instead of making my own. This purse was a lot of fun to make :)

I love sashes. How fun, you can change it around and have a different sash for a different look. Great job.

I especially love the coordinating sash, the detail on the handles and belt loops.
