I finally sewed on the straps. I really didn't have enough fabric. Me and my friend Hala are going to attempt to make some really cool bags from this book named "Sew many bags so little time". I ordered it from Crafters Choice(great book club) I really like this book. It's very good for beginners and has lots of cute little projects. Here is a little pic of the tote bag. Once I start sewing, I couldn't stop.
