What are you most proud of? I LOVE how Brenda put the side pockets on. It's a great technique. The pattern is very easy to follow - she does an amazing job keeping the directions basic and the drawings helpful. It's one of the few patterns I've used to teach a class that I haven't had to supplement with additional handouts. This was also my first attempt at the twist locks - love them. I bought them online at Purse Supply Depot. They don't come with directions, though. My JoAnn Fabrics has them - but they are slightly different and look a little more complicated to put on.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's not a beginner project, but I don't think that it's that difficult. I would also attach the strap to the back of the bag. After I made the green bag and used it, I ripped off the strap and attached it to the back. This seems to support the weight of the contents better - it doesn't sag in the middle of the bag anymore.
