I was inspired by a by several sources to make use of this scrap fabric I let my daughter spatter paint on. Think it turned out very well. Need to sew the bottom loop down next time though and possibly move the handle farther back.

Comments?

I love it! The paint makes a lot more interesting thats for sure. I don't think the handles too far back at all!

I meant that I need to move it back so that the weight of the bag isn't being carried by the flap... which is where it is now. The handle sits smack dab where the flap folds over. I am worried about wear in that position. I think it might be better if it was attached to the back of the bag versus the flap.

I did move the handle back on this bag.. but I am not sure it was a good idea. I think now it hangs a little odd. Thoughts?
