Ok so I saw this bag on the internet (west49 I think) and so Im going to attempt it - does anyone have any tips etc.? this is the only picture they had of it so I dont know if the strap is attached / where etc. but I was thinking of attaching it like just behind the zipper so the top part just goes over the zipper and the bottom comes around - does that make sense? Im not very good at explaining lol...but ya instead of the clip they have which I dont own I was going to use .. here ill draw a picture: kind of like that? and the thinner lines are the strap. sorry If you dont understand what I'm talking about - but does anyone know of any tutorials I could use to make the actual bag part?

oh and heres the picture of it:

It looks a bit like a zippered hobo style bag with a 'waist' belt to create the rutching..  I would do a search for hobo bag tutorials, then play with making a belt to go around the center for the detail there.  There are a ton of purse tutorials I would suggest glancing through them all for the 'how to' on the handle.  I've seen every kind of handle fixture I could imagine in there and some I didn't know existed!
