Mock-up Practice Tote

What are you most proud of? Ummmm getting there, frustrated by thread and tension - maybe it is just the pleather??? What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's fun learning new processes- I used pleather - OMG - what horrible fabric - my leather one will be so much easier than this baby! Had problems with the tabs, but it looks great.. Even though it is pleather!!
