Thank you so much!

Again, lovely job on that, and your eye for placement of the design- perfect! If this is your first attempt, you have a beautiful future in "baggage", LOL!  Wink

Beautiful!  Inspired me to print out the tutorial and start on a new purse for me!  But it seems like the handle would be a bit short - do you find that?  Or did you make it a bit longer than called for?  I made mine 24" (pattern calls for 20"), and just holding it up and eyeing it, it looks like it might be too short.  Thoughts?  Thanks!

Padester I used the 20" strap.  It falls just right to me.
