What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the colors you really like, it will work! Don't be afraid to try something a little different after the prototype, it's a lot of fun. "Out of failure comes opportunity", is so true. A problem gave me the bag bottom shape, which made finishing the bag much easier. I have a new technique that I'm going to use from now on... just have one more problem to fix!
