What are you most proud of? Bag Bottom Shape and Leather Lined Piped External Pocket What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the colors you really like, it will work! Don't be afraid to try something a little different after the prototype, it's a lot of fun. "Out of failure comes opportunity", is so true. A problem gave me the bag bottom shape, which made finishing the bag much easier. I have a new technique that I'm going to use from now on... just have one more problem to fix!
