What are you most proud of? The comments I get! I carry one of these, in a vintage orange fabric. I get stopped in stores, checkout lines, in front of school, everywhere. People want to know where I got it. That makes me proud :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time getting the ruffles right. If you line them up a little wonky, the whole bag will look slightly "off" I highly HIGHLY recommend a riffle foot for your machine, as well as a turned hem foot. one word=timesavers!
