|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Cute, Romantic, Funky|
What materials did you use? Cotton, lightweight canvas (lining), faux leather, zipper, metal feet, cotton rope (for handles), d-rings, clamps.
What are you most proud of? Working with faux leather. It was a little more difficult than I imagined because it stretches. I'm new to sewing so I'm new to working with different fabric types. The handles were a little hard to make - in fact, I made several before I got it right.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Experiment with the fabrics you use first - make a few proto-types and see what works best for you. I think I would have used synthetic rope, instead of cotton, (for less stretch with the faux leather) in making the handles. Next time I will.
