What was your inspiration?
The need to have a purse that would let me shop 'hands free'. Small enough to be light weight, large enough to hold a cell phone, wallet, camera and other small items.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Let your needs as to size and desires for colors be your inspiration. These make wonderful gifts as well so perhaps using up your scraps will accomplish two goals at once, the use of those scraps and create a gift stash for future giving needs!
