I made this lilttle dooda last night well i started last week scraped it and started it again. ITs got two buttons that close the flap and two lil bows on the bottomr right corner but u can hardly notice it in the pics. This is my stab at a small purse thing since usually i carry Humogoferous bags with only a pen and a cellphone in it lol
 My dilema is to add a handle or  long chain as a strap since i think a fabric strap would look bad.
comments welcomed =)

I think it would look good to add d-rings on either end, so you could interchange a chain strap or a fabric strap with it.

With that said, I love the shape. The fabric is awesome, too, unfortunately the design of the flap kind of gets lost in there. Maybe you could add some bias tape trim or something to emphasize the design?

I have this fabric too! I love it very much, but as for the handles...
My personal favorite is to have two because I think it is more comfortable, and an inside closure isn't needed. Whatever you choose, good luck! Lovely job so far.

AWee jeepers guys thanks for the comments.
Well in the spirit of recon i took a ratty old belt that had two chains on it hanging from it and well i tore them the hell off! lol.
I was thinking of something interchangeable since im so finiky. Well i dont know much about bias tape really but what if i sew around the endges in White embroidery floss like a wrap around i dont know if u get what i mean. since its white itll look like bias tape except that its not......and u can hardly see the bows i may do the same to that.
I saw someone witha cute ll shoulder bag and said shoot i need something tiny because im not in skool for the summer i dont need my Galacticly large bags. Where to buy handles? could that be interchangealbe?Huh
