What are you most proud of? That I have designed and handmade the most practical handbag I have ever owned. I learned how to install a recessed zipper and make cording. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to watch all the options that Brett shows. Really think about how you want your bag to function. There are many steps to making your bag - plan each stage and pay attention to the order that needs to be followed to include everything you want.
