What are you most proud of? I used 1" black cotton braid for the carrying straps--decorated with seam binding I made from the lime green duck cloth. Silver Wristlet Connectors with O-rings attach straps to the bag. TIP: Sometimes when you install magnetic snap closures on little purses like these--you can actually "feel" the magnetic snap through the fabric layers. Bummer--. To eliminate the "feel" of the magnetic snap--consider adding a faux button like this one on the liitle green bling purse. Just a big lime green button sewn to a square of black linen, then sewn in place to decorate the purse. The padded stacked button cushions just enough to eliminate the clunky feel of the magnetic snap closure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get some of those great wristlet connector w/ o-ring sets. You can find lots of Etsy shops who carry them. Go to Etsy, type in 1" Keyfob Hardware. 50 sets--under $15. Easy to install. Put strap end into open jaw of the connector, hammer to close jaw. Happy summer sewing!
