What are you most proud of? Getting through all 4 of them and working with the 3" zippers. Also, the lining is too big for the finished purse and I had to fudge it a lot to make it smaller. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's really hard to place the embroidery correctly because of the way the block is bent after construction. If you want to embroider on the sides, you may have to make a sacrificial one to test the placement. Until it's finished, you may not be able to tell if the design is in the right place. I had to draw corrections on one and deconstruct it back to the square to see how to place. I suggest using 1/4" stitch witch for the fiddly parts of attaching the the zipper end pieces.
