What are you most proud of? finishing! & of course the cool 'magic' pocket! my unintentional flap 'detail/patch'. the fabrics! the QAYG! also that there are some Tinkerfrog scraps in it - the perfect home for them! What advice would you give someone starting this project? i would make a bag with quilting cottons for exterior & lining, with a canvas/linen bottom, first. i think the leather is a more difficult element to try after you master the basic bag with pockets and boxed cornered bottom.
