Assembled

A while ago, I finished the body of the Quinn Bag, then ran into the quandry of what to do for the strap. I wasn't too enamoured with the idea of having a stripe of brilliant yellow mohair across my chest. On suggestion of someone from Craftster, I started looking for a braided belt. The first one was a little heavy, but then I ran across one that was thin and open - none of them were long enough for a cross-body, so I tried to pick a length that worked with the proportions of the bag.















The inside lining is a yellow cotton print left over from lightweight curtains I made. My sock knitting has already taken up residence!

That is an adorable bag! And the belt sets it off perfectly!

The belt is such a perfect idea! I also really like the lining, I need to line a bag soon and I'm a bit afraid.
