Ok, this is my first attempt at creating something from scratch... No pattern, I just went with the flow. A friend showed me how to set up the thread and I finally put my grandmother's sewing machine to use. I'm tooootally addicted :-P
This was made from two upholstery swatches/samples that had pre-made metal loops in them, as well as some vintage fabric I bought at an estate sale a million years ago. The brown ribbon is actually vintage bias tape, also from estate sale (whatever the hell that is).
I hope you like it!!!
UPDATE: I just made another last night, still have to do the strap...
