First off, I didn't read the instructions. I have a bad habit of having too much confidence in my abilities. Particulary, those abilities that require a sewing machine.
Second, and this wasn't my choice. The tutorial calls for foam padding to be between 1/2'' - 3/4'' thick. All I could find in Hobby Lobby was 1" thick foam. I had to use a sharp knife to slice through it so that my sides would not be too thick. Not easy my friends.
Third, I bought fabric without deciding which purse I was going to use. Great fabric. Only problem is I ended up deciding to go with a brown purse that I had that was a perfect size. Brown and black wouldn't have been my first choice, but the color combo is very trendy right now. This turned out to be a happy accident.

All in all, after all mistakes were corrected, it turned out great!
You can see a little bit of the camera strap I made to coordinate with the bag. Very happy with it all! I am making a promise to myself to save time and fabric in the future by reading instructions though.
