I stitched up my bag and felted it last night. The bag shrunk up fine but to say that the strap looks awful is being so very kind! The strap is a train wreck, and I don’t know what to do about it! It shrunk up curled which in itself is not that bad, but it’s so skinny I don’t know how it’s going to support the weight of the bag. This bag is a gift for someone who carries everything but the kitchen sink in her purse. Also the strap is so long that it hangs down to my knees and she’s not that much taller than I am.
I talked to the owner of my LYS about my lucy bag - the strap was a little longer than I’d like, and she said I could cut and sew it. I don’t know that it would help in this case and I’ve never done it before. If it was for me I might try it, but since it’s a gift… Any ideas?
