BTW ... is that a _Not for Tourist Guide_ I spy in there? Smiley


Nope, just a Moleskine notebook I use to jot down things I think of when I'm out and about.

Actually it's just one strap; in the first picture it's just mostly hidden behind the purse.  You can sort of see it going around the back in the second pic.

And you can never have too many purses . . .

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

Here's mine!  I've been using it for months...the silk ties are starting to die.  I used brown velveteen for the lining.

love yours too! Just got back to life again after the holidays and wow I've missed a lot. When you say the silk is dying what do you mean? Are you talking about the velveteen inside not holding up or is it the over all strength of the bag itself? Does it not want to hold the weight you have in it? Just curious becausse I have a real big stash of ties now and am itching to get going. I wonder if a really good heavy lining might be a good idea.

Caribou--Your purse looks great.  I'm sorry the silk is dying.  I just noticed today on mine that the snap is ripping out of the flap.  Blast those super strong magnet snaps.  I guess it was to be expected though; the flap gets the most abuse and I only used a scrap of t-shirt/jersey material to line it. 

But, my MIL raided my FIL's ties and has commanded me to make her a bag like mine.  I guess I can just fix mine while I'm working on hers!

Junquette- The silk ties I used are starting to rip...if you can look closely you can see 2 ties on the back of the bag ripping....noooo!  The velveteen is awesome though, and in general the whole bag is holding up really well with all of my schoolbooks and stuff.  I did add another piece of lining to the bottom of the bag, since I have so many books. 

Btw, thanks so much rickrackruby, this is one of the most awesome things in existence...really easy, and everyone loves it  Grin
