Hi friends! I have had several requests for an adjustable strap bag as well as adding hardware to bags, so in today’s tutorial we are going to tackle both! Plus we’ll be adding a cute zipper pocket to the back as well.

When I used to see hardware on bags I was immediately intimidated, however I think you’ll be pleased at how easy this bag comes together. And don’t worry, I’ll show you how to make this beautiful bag in my step-by-step video tutorial. Ready to get started?

We’re going to be installing a cute lobster clasp front enclosure as well as an adjustable shoulder strap which makes this bag super functional!

I’ve also added a cute zipper pocket in the back for added storage. And don’t worry, if you’ve never installed a zipper before it’s super easy and I’ll show you how step by step.

I used a Lella Boutique light blue pinstripe fabric for the lining. This is from her Nest line and I just think it’s so sweet.

For this project I used Rifle Paper Co Amalfi floral print fabric along with RJR Cotton + Steel Basics for the bottom. It is a natural color with cute little  white x’s on it.

It’s tall enough to fit a Jax as well. Though I’m not sure he’s super thrilled about that fact here. Normally he’s a “get in anything I can fit in” type of guy. Maybe he’s just having an “off” day?
