What are you most proud of? I tried a different quilting pattern than I usually use on string-quilt patterns, and am quite pleased with it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is an easy design to do without a pattern. Anyone with just a little sewing experience can probably think it through. I did put a very heavy interfacing behind the dark blue tabs to which I attached the magnetic snaps for extra strength.

can you get this pattern

I didn't use a pattern but designed it as I went. Unfortunately, I haven't written it up as a pattern, either. Maybe someday I should. But if you have some sewing experience, you could easily design one similar yourself. If you don't feel confident just doing it, you might want to take the Craftsy course "Design Your Own Handbag," in which you'd learn how to do a whole variety of techniques.
