I guess this is the right spot.. The bag is all new, but the strap is clearly reconed..

Skullfinity fabric from JoAnns, lined with the same fabric and has an inside pocket.

This is the full bag:


Inside, library card showing interior pocket:


Close up of the strap and strap attachment:


Thanks for looking

The bag is awesome. Out of curiosity, how did you make the bottle tab strap? It's a great idea.

I've actually made it a point not to share with anyone..(I have a bracelet that matches and everyone asks about it).. however I suppose I can fill in a craftster. Just clip the end of the tab with the more oblong cutout and link em up 4 in each direction. It's really easy to cut through them, but no one believes me.

this is awesome, i used to have a LOT of tabs from a project a friend and i did in 8th grade, we had to do something for earthday that involved recycling, we made jewelry out of tabs...nothing too interesting...i think it'd be cool do to it again now with more creativity.

i love the purse its choice!

I used a pattern of my own, mostly just cut and hope it turns out okay.

The pop tab tutorial... when I save up a few more I'll put one together, promise.

Thanks for sharing with the crafsters.  Grin

Do you clip the top middle and bend it out to be able to link them together?  Do you add any glue to keep them together?

If you are going to do a tutorial, could you post a picture just linking 2 together for now so that we can see how they go together?

Thanks so much. It looks really neat all together like that.

Definitely will. I actually don't drink soda, so it took me a long time to save up those tops, and I'm going to need to go to a party or something to get enough to put this thing together, but I'm going to aim to do it by the end of this coming week.

gee, if you were close to me, I'd save the things and send them to you, we used to save them for my husband's neices. Once we gave them over 1000 tabs, everyone we knew were saving them.

There ya go =) I hope everything is clear even though I'm not too sure that I explained everything. Any questions please feel free to ask.

Also, I'm still saving up tabs to make the other tut, I think I'll have that one done by the end of the weekend.
