What are you most proud of? That I worked it so you don't have to fasten off and rejoin. Ever. I love that it's worked in one shot. Also, that it's so functional - stretches to accommodate a lot of stuff! I use my first one to carry all of my stuff for work - my "floor purse", my lunch, my water bottle, and any other junk I need to carry. Works great! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't let the top band and handles throw you off. Also, don't feel like it has to be made with the nylon stated; there are bigger sizes that will make bigger bags - grab a bigger hook and go for it!
