Well I have changed the style of bag I am making for gifts as to be honest the other one with the draw string was just too hard for the kids to carry around. This one takes a little longer but I think it looks great. Basically I just changed the straps and also sewed a base into it.
I am not sure how this bag will be recieved. The parents are very much he is a boy and he will have boy things type people, so not sure how a bag with straps will go down. I just think they are so useful and the kids will get years of use out of them.
