Small Quilted Purse

What are you most proud of? That I was able to design such a complex bag and be able to sell quite a few locally and online. Most of my local sales were by word-of-mouth. The hardest part of attaching the hook & loop tapes into the exact positions and the purse and pockets close perfectly. This, alone, was a proud moment for me - exact positioning. What advice would you give someone starting this project? As soon as this pattern is available for sale, the best advice I could give is to stay VERY organized throughout this project. There are so many pieces, and some very close in size, that the smallest mistake would keep your seam ripper busy or the piece unusable. Guess how I know this!! It's not a hard pattern but does take some patience and focus to put it together in the right order. But, once it's finished, you'll love the results!!!
