Q&A with Edvicki365147

Don Morin asked:
Cute design. Love the metal strap.
Edvicki365147 answered:
Thanks! It isn't an original idea, but I had to figure out how to hide the ends of the woven-in leather. I also like that you can use it as a clutch by either removing the strap, or just letting it drop inside the bag.

this looks great. I love looking at the projects you all make. You used doubled up thread for topstitching - thank you for sharing the knowledge that it worked! I live in a small town in Australia and getting a range of topstitching (and other requirements) is difficult. A case of 'necessity is the mother of invention" with regard to the topstitching! Thanks.
Edvicki365147 answered:
Thanks! Glad the tip was helpful. I also live in a small town (but in the US), and have to order most of my supplies online. I learned the topstitching trick from Kenneth D. King's "Jeanius" class on Craftsy.
