What materials did you use? An old, favorite sweatshirt, which, due to unraveling cuffs and a poor fit, I don't wear anymore, quilter's cotton, cotton duck, rigid interfacing, grommets, magnetic closure, cord.

What are you most proud of? I took the opportunity to fully customize the interior, including elements I have liked from different purses I have had in the past as well as modular components which solve issues I can't seem to get rid of (adding a receipt-collection bag which clips inside and where I can shove all my loose receipts, and then unclip at the end of the day(or week, or month) and bring to the computer to balance my accounts).

I love the embroidery! Looks fantastic!

Thanks! That is what attracted me to the sweatshirt in the first place. I had to space the straps out a little further to make the embroidery be framed without being crowded.
