What are you most proud of? Added decorative stitches to the carrying strap as well as the front pocket embroidery design. She liked the decorative stitches on the Kindle tote I was wearing. I paid attention to the client's request--as she couldn't decide if she wanted a body strap, or a wristlet strap. So, I made sure she had both, by adding clip on/off lobster claw clasps and o rings. The wristlet connector is new to me--I love it--it adds function and beauty. Making colorful polymer beads for zipper pulls is always fun.

Hi There Georgy Girl. The wristlet connector is from http://stores.ebay.com/i-Craft-For-Less. Fits a 1 inch strap. Connector has an open jaw with 2 teeth. the strap is position inside the jaw, and a hammer crimps the connector to secure the strap. The connector and key ring is a set. I bought 50 sets for around $15.00 plus $5 for shipping. The swivel clasps I buy at Hancock Fabric, 2 in a package for under $3.00.
