|I love the handmade tabs from Emmaline bags!!|
I also finally started the Nora by Swoon for a friend. She only picked everything out a few months ago...I'm trying to get my backlog cleared up but with craft shows and Christmas coming up, things are going to jump the line and get pushed back randomly!
For the sew along, someone was looking for the hardware, so here are some quick picks I snapped in Joann's last night.. I was trying to get one without a kid, so of course I ended up with blurry ones. :| Mine didn't have any of the 3/4" that the pattern calls for, but you could always substitute 1/2" or 1" and you would adjust the width of the strap.
To adjust the width of the strap, cut the strap to the same length as the pattern states, but cut the width of the piece to 4x the inside measurement of your hardware. If you used a 1" D ring, you'd cut the fabric to be 4" wide. For a 1/2" D ring, cut the fabric to be 2" wide. Then follow the same instructions for ironing it in half and folding the edges in to the center and ironing again.
|In the Notions aisle|
|Purse area, mine is near the beading and jewelry making section. Sorry for the blur, but at least you can get an idea of the colors on the packages! And they are usually a little cheaper than the notions ones.|
|I think I might be good on D rings for a few months...these are just my nickel finished ones.|

Make myself a new winter hat before it gets too cold.
