What materials did you use? Cotton Twill for the main bag and handles. - Great little plaid seersucker I'd wanted to use for years for the main lining.

What are you most proud of? Making the front pockets the perfect size for a cell phone. These days it's an essential piece of equipment. You don't want to dig through your purse to find it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't forget to attach all the bling and the handles to the exterior BEFORE you connect it to the lining. I had a bit of seam ripping to do.....

Gorgeous! All of your details look fantastic -- the zipper, handles, lining, pockets are all great! I love that you did two small pockets in the front, great idea! :)
