Thanks, cool that you are going to try rivets for the straps.  I look forward to seeing that, bet it looks really good!  It is about the thickness of quilting cotton, maybe just a tad thicker, but seems like it is a blend, has a bit of shine to it, a little slickness, if that makes any sense.  Sort of like the material that my cloth shower curtains are made of, if that helps.  I got it at Walmart in the clearance bin for 1.50 a yard, and didn't think to notice the kind of material it was.  I think the bag will probably hold up very well.  It holds its shape when empty, I used fusible heavy weight interfacing on each piece, so it made it pretty sturdy.  I won't find out how it will hold up to being used until vacation time, though.  I couldn't get my husband to understand why we need to take a weekend away to test out my new bag, lol!

Thanks for the link, and info for purse supplies.  I will look into that.

Thanks for the compliments!

 Thanks for the advice about the brads, I ended up having to use large snaps instead.  I just used the top part, and they seem to work fine.  I also used some on the handles, to secure them at the top.  It adds a nice decorative touch, I think(maybe that will draw the eye away from the supporting stitching, lol).  I also made the handles a little longer, I think.  Here are a couple more pictures, finished, showing the snaps I used.  It's not perfect, but it's good enough for me!  I am planning on making another soon for my daughter for our next vacation!  Thanks for looking!

Such a cool idea.  It would really encourage you to not carry a bunch of extras in your wallet, huh?

Very cute!  I wouldn't have thought to use the denim as the base and the print as the accent.  Good job.
