Cork Board

3. Line edge with ribbon or bias tape – I used hemming tape to attach the bias tape to the edge.
Thanks to Jenny over at Pearl Street Interiors blog for the inspiration!

Strap-red leather pant leg
Train Picture-cut from a t-shirt friends gave me
The strap is connected to the bag by wooden circles (old curtain rings) and it’s adjustable.
