Very professional-looking with that gorgeous lining and the grommets. Grandmas always need strong straps because they keep half their lives in their bags! :D Got enough yarn leftover to do that for her? If not, you could tell her the bag would just hang too low with longer straps, and that doubled straps wouldn't fit through the holes.

I like it, love it, just the way it is.

Tell her that MY booga straps stretched quite a bit once I loaded it up with my heavy stuff. I am thinking of going back and cutting them off and re-knotting. Your bag looks fantastic. I didn't line mine, but now I want to.

Niiiice!!! Love the colors!! And good thinking of putting a liner in(I heard it helps to not strectch your finished bag) :thumbsup:

I think your bag is beautifully done...inside and out...the letters are great too. Her initials I imagine. Nice and personal. You are a wonderful granddaughter to make this lovely and practical bag for your grandmother. Perhaps she wants to make it a shoulder bag so she can have her hands free when she walks. This is safer for her. Let's hope the straps do stretch out for her a bit. Unless of course you can make new straps that are a bit longer to be worn over her shoulder. I hope she grows to appreciate and enjoy her new bag.

How nicely put. :D

The bag is beautifully done. The lining looks scrumptious.

thanks everybody. i was actually surprised at her reaction. i didn't expect her to be so happy about it.
but if i double the straps will it be sturdier?
