I just finished these up this week:

the straps on the faux leather Ohm bag drove me batty!  I ended up ditching them and just using the black cotton webbing.

Hey these are great! I really like the linen combo you do with the fabrics, reminds me of the Japanese craft book asthetic. I love the long tall magazine one especially. And nice job cutting out the OM symbol (that couldn't have been easy.)  Keep up the good work!

Love them all!  I can't tell from the picture how you attached the handles on the Ohm bag, can you share that with us?  It really gives a great look to the bag.  Your work is fantastic!

yes!  I attached them with jeans buttons!

Its a 2-part button,that goes on kind of like a post earring!Lol!
You poke the backing part through the fabric (it looks kind of like a tack) and then push the front of the button onto it. The grooves on both the post and the button make the button is very secure!
