A close up of the tassel of the strap. It is sewn to the front left corner and goes though a loop at the back, then though a loop on the right front corner and is sewn to the right back corner. I came up with this ingenious system all by myself! 😛 I only had the one braid to use as a strap so had to make it work and this seems to. The lining is a found piece that was given to me with some other fabric. I think it is either rayon or silk. Gave it an iron-on backing & a little pocket and it seems to work fine. The colors matched very well, I thought.
