Project-X-us Interruptus

 

 

 


I'm putting the finishing touches on my Project X Flat Felt piece...

...and just to keep you in suspense for one more day...

...let me present to you my Flower Bag with its new straps.

First, I removed the re-purposed single belt strap (see top photo)...

...by snipping the hand-stitching that held it to the bag (easy-peasy).

Then, I used my rotary cutter to slice it into 1/2-inch wide lengths...

...and sewed each end (firmly) to a small piece of fabric.

Next, I machine stitched the fabric 'tapes' to the bag, and voila...

...it's much more user friendly, I think.
