What are you most proud of? I am proud that I actually completed this project and still have my finger tips intack .. hehe!! Lots of hand sewing with a sharp needle. I designed the pop can pull tab element from a you tube video that I saw on how to make a bracelet & it grew from there. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The bag itself was a simple knit pattern. The straps could be done in many many ways. You could use strapping, fabric embellished to not, and you could also use as a tote without the zippered lining. Sometimes my projects take on a life of their own as I work on them & what I started isn't what I finish. My best advise would be to let your imagination soar.
