What are you most proud of? The hardware was a bit tricky. I also love the overall design and finished product. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, write down your steps as you do them. Make a muslin copy first and don't be afraid to rip out a seam if it doesn't look right. Also, measure, measure, measure. I got the whole bag together then realized I did not measure right for the snap. I had to take the bag apart, and make a new outside pocket... boy was that frustrating!
