Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing
simona.bu73 on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Patent leather with ribbon drawings engraved on it. Imitation of leather used inside for the lining, with a small zippered pocket.

What are you most proud of? I think that it the metal closure is nice, even if the bag as a whole is not so perfect!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I probably didn't pay so much attention to glueing, and then, due to this, my seams are not perfect.... But now I think I can try to make another one just a bit more carefully!

Looks very nice. The imperfections aren't noticeable and practice makes perfect.

Excellent job.. You have used some techniques that I haven't shown you yet you have succeeded in constructing a well designed handbag. You have truly made it your own. Bravo!
