Here you see all the tabs and flaps open. The closure for the bag is velcro (though a button is sewn to the outside of the top flap). The tab on the left also has a button sewn to the ouside but is actually a snap closure. The tab on the right has a big button and button hole. All three buttons are vintage pearlized ones, very pretty!
The is the left side of the strap. It has gromets/eyelets that have a red ribbon threaded through so Be can learn to tie ties in a couple years. HOW often do you get to use a hammer in sewing? I can't even begin to tell you how much fun that way!
