OMG!! I can't believe you did a tutorial for us! Thank you so much. I love this bag and can't wait to give it a try. I have a stash of material and I just know there is something great in there to make this bag. Plus it will give me an incentive to do a zipper. I've been avoiding them. Thanks again for your generosity!
I've made the Fat Quarter Drawstring Backpack a couple of times. Once using fabric for the straps and the other one used cord. I'm not crazy about the way it closes with pulling on strap one way and one the other. I find it hard to get pulled closed without it really pulling tough on each side. The cord one really didn't want to close. I think it would work much better going all the way around and having two straps on each side or using the other method posted in this thread with the straps coming out of the middle of the back of the bag and stitching them down on the front. I plan on making a couple more of these so will have to try other ways to close them. I'm sure part of my issue is I'm lining them so I have pockets.
Love, love, love your wallet and the fabric is fantastic! I also would love to know how you made this. I've had a few ideas rolling around in my head but haven't been able to get it completely figured out. I've made the cute little wallet from the tut on here but I'm not exactly happy with it. I love your inside pockets. This wallet would hold my stuff so much better. Keep up the good work!
