Well, I've worked on this on and off for the past few days...I'm not sure I'm crazy about it...but thought I'd post it and see what you all think?

I was inspired by an ergo bag I saw online, so I didn't design this or anything.  It has 3 pockets on the outside, and I put a button and buttonhole on the strap so I had a shorter strap and loop for carrying.   Unbuttoned, the strap is slightly longer.  I still have to line it, but I'm tired of working on this today!   Tongue

Thanks for looking!

Nice!!  I think I saw that bag online too and it looks exactly like it.  You did a great job.  It is a pretty neat style and the fabric is great too.

Hey: That's great! I've been looking at that kind of a thing on-line as well.  I haven't tried making one, but it only just recently occurred to me that I could sew one.  (My brain is on vacay: what can I say? Maybe it's the problem of the aging brain, too.  I don't know.)  This looks great.  Plus, it proves that sewing one up is possible.

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

I love that bag. I like the material it's made of. I want to make one myself, but I don't have any measurements. I would love a tutorial if you may.
