What are you most proud of? The idea and how it was executed. My sewing skills are coming back after 20 plus years of not sewing.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Learn basic sewing techniques like putting in a zipper and finishing edges.

I like this very much, but the photos make it difficult to see how it goes together. Can you provide some direction or close-up photos? Thanks////1

I created the images in photo shop with layers of textures, text and scans o fmy antique postcard collection and printed on fabric. The latch was covered with a scan of my 1938 buffalo nickel over a metal button.
