What materials did you use? A black Denim like fabric for the outside. A blue satin like for the lining. A ready-made strap and feet and studs. I also used hot glue rhinestones.

What are you most proud of? I am proud of myself for finishing it and also the rhinestones.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read and reread! Plan first and then cut everything out. Also, I watched the class over and over again especially when I couldn't remember how to do a section.

Did you machine embroider the flap? Great use of different design elements.

Yes, I did machine embroider the flap. I love machine embroidery and I also glued on bling!

I am so loving this bag Spammy. You DID do a great job! The embroidered design goes so well with this style, can't expalin just does! I've been wanting to experiment with rhinstones and machine embroidery too, so it's nice to see an example of that here. Glad you were able to complete the bag too. Isn't it a wonderful feeling of accomplshment? You asked for feedback. Alrighty then, here goes...more pics! :D
