What are you most proud of? All of it! Considering the only other things I have sewn (thus far) are pillows and curtains, I think it turned out pretty good. There are a few minor details that I would tweek if I were more advanced at sewing, but otherwise I think its great! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would put in small panels on each side of the purse to provide a better shape, and maybe one on the bottom as well. Also, measure the length of your strap! I made mine too long, but had already sewn it into the interior pannels, so I remedied it by putting a button on the strap, so it can adjust the length.
