Usually only make small bags and zippered pouches, but had a request for a large, zippered tote that someone wanted to take on a trip to Mexico as a flashy, stand-out item.  I was so concerned about getting it right and making it nice that it is so reinforced it'll probably last 20 years!  It took me a lot longer than I thought it would (mostly making the canvas handles from scratch).  Anyone got any tips on making canvas handles without all the measuring and ironing? (the two things I most despise).

You can put the kittens in the oven; but that don't make 'em biscuits.
