Chainmaille Drawstring Bag

Who is this project for? Unisex What are you most proud of? The mushroom. I really like that it looks like a mushroom. The bag is pretty sweet too. But I need to replace the drawstring with some leather; which I've got. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't do this unless you really really want to and if you do - you'll benefit from buying the jump rings instead of trying to make your own. Oh and you can probably get away with using a thinner gauge of wire. I used 18 gauge because that's my favorite gauge to work with. I think.
