I love them! Great job! What is the other fabric you are using? It almost looks like velvet or terry cloth. What did you do on the inside? I like how the strap knots on the side too, nice little detail. Are you going to try and sell these? I bet they'd do great. I'm getting back to sewing too as my hands are totally aching from crocheting ;)

Hi girls, thanks for your comments. This is my own design. I just worked with the dimensions of the dishtowels. The sides are about 2.5 inches wide. The strap is about 2 inches wide. On one side of the bag, I inserted a strap loop and two 1.25-inch d-rings into the side. Then on the other side I inserted a long strap. I trimmed the strap to a diagonal, stitching to secure, then inserted it into the d-rings and looped it into a knot. I hope this makes sense. The orange fabric is a cotton velveteen. I call it my "tangerine velveteen!" I will take another photo of this bag showing the side and the d-ring arrangement.
