A Round Bottom Sling Bag Tutorial
Hey world this is my first tutorial on how to make a sling bag with a round bottem. I got the idea when my sister came back from mexico with a bag that looks a bit like the one I'm making today.

After I made my bag I noticed that it was made slightly like steph blue's sling bag and that was unintenstional so no haters out there saying I copied her! haha
