What are you most proud of? The quality of this purse is far better than anything else I think I've sewed so far. It's difficult to show in pictures, but I'm very proud of taking the time to make sure I did it right. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a sample of material first to make sure you know how it's going to work. Making a muslin for for pieces that you may not know final dimensions or construction processes for is also very helpful and can same real headaches on the final bag.
