I finally finished these bags! I started making them aaaaa-ges ago then I think I ran out of strapping so they sat in my "to finish basket" for quite some time. I got the strapping then still did not finish them. Sewing the straps on is my least favorite task. I need to reinforce the stitching carefully so the straps won't fall off. It is so thick I sometimes think I should wear protective glasses in case the needle breaks! And it is kind of fiddly with not a lot of space to maneuver.
Anyway I am so glad these are done and looking gorgeous. There are three in all, each one slightly different but all very very cute.
