I had bought a men’s dress shirt that had an interesting pattern from Salvation Army for the material, but I had no idea what to use it for. It hung out in my closet for a while until I decided to use the cloth to make a cute purse! I just sorta made it up on my own.
If you use a men’s dress shirt like I did, you don’t have to make an actual shoulder strap. The material of the shirt shouldn’t matter if you line it with something thick like felt.
