What are you most proud of? I have de-constructed a whole pair of jeans and made two items out of them!!! Things that I will use too!! I am very happy with this bag. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The first cut is the hardest! If you get stuck - pin or baste - see what you think. Make a drawing of what you want it to be. I do that and it turns out to be something totally different!!!!!
