That's an adorable bag, but your "how to" is pretty lacking, all you told how to do was cut circles and pin them, then to just sew. You didn't explain anything about the strap, or about those folded down bits...? You also mention accessories, but didn't explain how you made those either. Not trying to be rude, just helpful tips for next time, to explain step-by-step what you did, so other people can follow.
