Thanks for all the nice comments on the purse, I spent such a long time making them, so I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes the way it looks ;P
To sewcute: I have no idea what the grey thing is called, it probably is binding, it's like a ribbon only folded on the back?
beautyproof: lol .. im not really sure what its called either. but it sounds, by the way you describe it, that its the stuff i always call "binding" .. its probably the incorrect term. but at least i know thats what you used
