In my surfing I found a wonderful Blog called Tiny Happy with instructions on making a shoulder bag. I like her instructions and I plan on making a couple of these with some interesting/wild fabrics. If you like to sew, give it a try. I added the link to the Tiny Happy Blog on "Links I Like". She has a lot of good ideas and I enjoy reading her Blog, give it looksee. She lives in Norway but is from New Zealand. If you make one of the bags, I'd like to post a picture on my site with your permission. I know I want to make at least one!
