What are you most proud of? I learned a lot making this first bag - not TOO many mistakes. It gave me confidence to try more things.

Not only a FABULOUS job, but what a great way to re-purpose a terrific fabric. My guess is that you will get many compliments and maybe some orders while wearing this bag. BRAVO!

Thanks grd1604. Re-purposing is grand.

I really like this bag. I have a question - how did you get the tabs on the sides of the bag to look so neat. Did you sew on after your put the bag together? You did a really good job!!

Thanks! I put the tabs on the bag after I sewed the outsides together, leaving them far enough down so as not to interfere with the top seam when I attached the lining.
