What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cotton twill is a great fabric for this project. However, it is a little thick when it comes to putting the tabs together for sewing onto the main handbag. Maybe it's something I just need to gain proficiency.

Gorgeous bag. I thought it was Brett's bag? It is put together so well, the lining is gorgeous, and it looks very professional!

That's the best compliment I could get! Thank you so much. I've been sewing since my mother taught me when I was eleven years old. I needed help with the finishing touches that makes a bag sell: hardware, interlining, different types of zipper installation techniques. I learned so much from the class.

I love this and you are correct that even a person with years of experience, sewing, gains valuable information and guidance and boosted confidence from a Craftsy Class. I agree this class took me further along in details indeed!
