I've given up on the idea of making my own bag for now, DH got a new laptop and thought it would be nice for me to make him a pouch/bag for it. I'm going to just do a very slim messenger bag, but he wants a wooden toggle button closure for the flap. So we've got a toggle and some thin round elastic to act as the loop to go round it, but now I have no idea how to actually attach the elastic or toggle to the bag!

Any ideas? Huh

You could tie the elastic tightly in a loop, then insert the knotted end of the loop into the seam allowance of the flap, and sew it in the seam. Alterntively, make a loop, cover the knot with a triangle of fabric (or leather) to cover the knot. and stitch around the edge of the triangle like an applique.
