What are you most proud of? With the finishing tips that I learned from Brett, I don't think anyone can tell that the purse in "homemade". What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan out your design in detail before starting your project. I can promise you that, other than the monogram, there wasn't any part of this purse that wasn't done twice, lol! My "fly by the seat of my pants" approach didn't work so well on this type of project. Other than that, I loved every part of the design and construction of this purse!
