I liked the overall look of each purse, but decided the straps were too wide.  Anxious to fix them, I pinched the middle 6" in half.  Next I stitched close to the edge along the previous topstitching.  It turned out better than expected.  Hope you like them too.

The first two main fabrics are from the 70's.



I added vintage blue striped buttons to the center to give it more personality.




I have been saving the cream floral fabric from my old sofa (purchased in the 90's).

Love 'em all, especially that terrific 70's fabric in the first bag!  I love working with upholstery fabric - it's nice and sturdy (and usually washable, despite their instructions) and easy to work with.  You did a really good job on all 3 bags - I'm going to try that strap technique on my next bag!
