Today I turned my double bicycle bag into two messenger
style bags, one to wear on the shoulder and one to carry in
my hand.
It didn't take long to get the Velcro straps off and sew the
red straps on.

Here's the front.

And here's the back.

As you can see there's needle marks after where the Velcro
was stitched on and I don't want  there to become a hole so
I glued on a felt patch on the inside to prevent this.

I used normal glue stick for the felt patch, anything else
would have melted the material.
(I've learned from my mistakes.)

My next step with these might happen tomorrow, I need
to get into town to the haberdashery and get some double
edge lace and sew it onto the straps for even more of that
lovely kitschyness.
