What are you most proud of? I am proud that I was able to make it without pattern instructions. I used techniques I learned in Brett Bara's class and the web. It's the first leather purse I've made and I'm pleased with it. My husband says it looks very high end. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and plan your steps-leather is not very forgiving if you have to make corrections, especially on the outside. Make sure you have all your tools and materials ready before you start.
