Both very cute bags!

I was thinking that some sort of interfacing would maybe give the first bag enough body that it might not pull so much on the straps, plus if it's possible to interface your straps also they'd be stronger as well.  I'm not sure if this addresses the problem you described.  You wouldn't necessarily have to use heavy interfacing, either.  Sometimes it depends on the fabric used, too, if it's lightweight, etc. 

About the measurement issues in the tut for your second bag...if it helps, I made a hobo bag tut last year, that looks sort of similar to this one, but the measurements are all pretty detailed.  Here's the link to it (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=125025.0)   I hope this isn't "horning in" on the tut you used! 

Good luck and definitely post your tut for the first bag...I would love to try it out!!  Cheesy

I really liked the flower style, the side ties added a nice touch..
