Since I cannot watch any TV, I have been sewing. I made an identical back for the denim/vinyl bag and added denim gussets:
People seem to like the "shaggy" aspects of these bags. That is fine with me because it is so much easier to make a shaggy strap to flop over one's shoulder.
I still have to make the lining, which is just like making a second bag--slightly more work because I have to add snaps to the top.
I probably won't finish this bag until next week because tomorrow night I have to clean out this room for carpet cleaning. I just hope I remember where I put all of the elements I need to complete this one!
