    I changed the handles to a single one, end to end. Also, I sewed magnets into the lining so that the bag would sort of stay together. Next I plan to make one a smaller size and add a flap. I need to buy fabric and fusible fleece for it. Time to go shopping!

    My mom and I were just going through her sewing supplies yesterday and came across the small lead weights used in drapery to keep it from flying in the wind. There are also tiny lead weights sewn together by the yard that would propably work well for the lining to weight it down.

    Too cute...when you mention putting magnets into it...d did you just pop them into the seam or make a special little spot for them?

    You're very clever. One strap bags are the best - they stay on your shoulder. Very pretty too!

    I sewed each magnet into a little bit of folded fabric. then I stitched that fabric to the inside of the lining.

    I;ve made quite a few of the mini bow tucks.Sometimes I cant find a good cordnating fabric so I make the outside one color,I;ve decided that I really like them that way.
