What are you most proud of? The size is great. Medium size clutch and great for casual needs. I need to make the handles, and don't have enough straight pieces of leather - so I might make them in black leather or even suede -eek - that is hard to sew!!!! I had to face the suede to the leather and match the edges due to the top edge of the bag. It needs to be trimmed when I make the handles. Maybe I'll add some hardware somewhere. Now I've added the handles and a big leather needle makes all the difference to sewing leather - in the machine. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just try it. My next leather bag will be better as I have now a supply of leather thread and needles for my machine - it is difficult when you are in the country!
