The recent thread about purses got me thinking once again of the idea of designing my own purse. I can never find one that really has what I need in the configuration I want it. I know what size I want, how many pockets, what types of compartments, where I want them, etc… my main concern is how hard it would be to sew (especially the zippers!), and how hard it would be to make something durable enough. Anyone have any experience with this and maybe some pointers?
[Note: I don’t buy or use leather so sewing through leather isn’t an issue–it would be fabric of some sort.]
