What are you most proud of? This purse actually turned out to look professional. I love that. Looks like I bought this at a high end boutique.

I love your bag and I have made one quite similar to yours. I 'd like to show mine in my blog, and I'd like to mention you as my inspiration. Would you mind me doing so?

I do not mind at all. Tell me you blog so I can read it!

I adore this purse. you state that you used a boys jacket and cargo jeans to make this purse. It looks like you used the boys jacket for the front. Where did you use the cargo pants? I want to make one for my daughter. Any more suggestions on how you made this purse would be very much appreciated. thank you.

Hi, Metzy! here's the link to my blog. Picture of "your" handbag is not very good, but it's the one I have, as I did not pay much attention to photos before I started the blog... It's in Spanish and in English.
