The back pocket addition is perfect!
I am afraid that I agree with your hubby...the purse is really suppose to be whacky, busy, crazy, whatever and the strap sort of stands out in its "plainness"
...I would definitely add some colorful embellishments to make it blend in better...
Thanks so much for showing it off...it truly inspires me to finish mine and I think I know what I want to do for the strap now!
It is really very nicely done!!
