I'm new to making bags - can you tell me what you used for the zipper pulls and the straps - is that bias tape? Like I said, I'm new, and I don't know what I'm looking for when I'm shopping...
Thanks for your help!
The zipper pull, I made myself using crochet cotton and a skull bead. Just looped a couple of strands of crochet cotton threaded on a bead and knotted the cotton to keep the bead in place.
The straps are a lightweight cotton webbing. Here's a link as to what it looks like close up: http://www.wbcindustries.com/web_cotton.html
I think what I used is polyester though, not cotton. I didn't like it at first because I didn't think it was sturdy enough but after using it, the webbing doesn't dig into your hands when carrying the bag.
