What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made the mistake of putting the bag handles inside the interior fabric when sewing the lining together, it caused a big headache, now I know for next time to sandwich the handles inbetween the exterior and interior fabrics before I sew them together. Also, if you like your bag handles a little longer like me just add a few inches to the outline length wise, I added an extra 7 inches to the 17 1/2 outline and the tote came out nice. Also, I liked the box look at the bottom a little deeper so instead of 1 1/2' inseam, I used 2' to box the corners.
