Wowee~ this bag just did not want to be made. It was on a mission. (lol-sort of)
I had completely finished it, but decided that even though my new favorite interfacing is great-I should never use an iron with steam with interfacing. I know, I know, it's always on the instructions-I think, isn't it? Don't use steam? I usually can get away with it, but not this time. I had to take the whole bag apart and take off the interfacing and cut the bag parts down smaller and redo the zipper and so on. So not fun.
I also had to redo the strap/zipper section several times due to the way that I install it. I want the strap to lay flat against the body so it doesn't twirl, after all if is a sling bag- however the way that I have devised to do this is confusing and every time I go to do it, I mess up, double twirl it, and have to redo that whole section :0
(Note to self-write down the instructions for myself next time!)
So anyway, here it is. The bag that refused to be made ; )

It's smaller than the previous sling bag I made, but just as handy ; ) It's also going in the shop today.
