Once everything was cleaned up and tidy once more, I set to finishing the bag. First off, I plaited the straps.
All in all, it's not looking too bad so it will do for me.
If you want to have a go at one for yourself, I followed the instructions in a little book called ' purses bags and more by Pearl Louise Krush, www.thimblecottage.com
