Autumn, I SO LOVE that you wrote this tute in January of 2006 and that it's gotten such a great following and attracted so much traffic, even 6 years later!! I would ask you where you got this AB FAB fabric, but I'm guessing it's long gone by now. It is GORGEOUS! I have made many different bags, using different patterns, tutorials & of my own design. This tutorial is perfect because it is a simple, basic purse pattern that you can use in so many different ways. Dress it up, dress it down, make it into a thermal lunch bag as someone mentions just above, diaper bag - the shape is perfect & I am really excited to try your methods! Thank you for taking the time to do this. (I do think it's funny that you say in your tute "there aren't many bag tutorials out there" and now they are EVERYWHERE!!) But, yours has stood the test of time and stands out as a favorite of mine. Thank you again. Beth I noticed you didn't answer a lot of the questions, so it's likely you are way too busy to deal with this, but I do have a question about this step: "Cut the 10 inch piece into 4 pieces 2 1/2 inches each. These will be the tabs that attach the strap to the bag. Using a 1 inch d ring sew each tab piece to the flat side of the d ring then attach the strap folding down about 1" DO YOU USE A ZIPPER FOOT? I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A HARD TIME SEWING NEATLY WHEN I HAVE MAKE KEY FOBS, ETC. USING A KEY RING. I would love any suggestions or tips on how your tabs look so perfect, if you have the time, of course! Much thanks! Happy crafting!

Autumn, I've used these clasps and reinforce them as well, and I have never had any problem with them either! Great job!
