Pumpkin Beaded Tote

What are you most proud of? I love the Pumpkin colored fabric; it has a textured grid surface that helped me lay dowan a straight line of beads. Advantage. Laying down one thick band of beads caused me to paused from hour to hour. The question was--when to stop??? I don't know . . . I just worked on it until it looked good (when I stand six feet away). What advice would you give someone starting this project? CONTRAST: I machine stitched decorative stitch in black on the parting line of the long cross body straps. The dense decorative stitch looks great, and also gives the straps extra firmness.
