|Making the hole for the turnlock.|
It was also the first time I got to use one of my new hole punches. It's hard to cut out the hole for the turnlocks, so I heard through an online bag making group about these leather punches. Love them, I used for two sets of holes in this bag.

I hadn't installed one of these in before, but easy as can be. Easier than getting the little screws in on the turnlocks!
All done! These are for the handles to come through from the other side...pretty tricky!
I really like this color combo and the gray woven was a dream to work with. I hand sewed the binding on the second side. No way was I going around those gussets on the machine again.
It's on display at Cut Up and Quilt now, so look for it the next time you are in shopping.
I've been working on a second Traverse Bag by Noodlehead. Love how it's turning out so far, though I had some problems with the top stitching yesterday. Hope to finish it today, but first some cleaning!
