Closure solution for Authentic Bag - A Toggle Button!

Remember the super fabulous Bagalicious Club I joined? And that lovely little bag I made from the first kit, which was called Authentic for the fabric line that was used? I was not entirely happy with the fact that there was no closure included in the pattern, and was thinking of adding a magnetic snap during construction of my bag. But I forgot in my excitement to finish the bag!

Well now I have a solution that I think looks great and works well for the bag. What do you think?

Closure solution for Authentic Bag - A Toggle ButtonI found this black toggle button at Joann's and thought it would be a nice addition to the bag with its black outer shell.

Closure solution for Authentic Bag - A Toggle ButtonI sewed a strip of leftover fabric just as the instructions said for the straps, only shorter, and made a little loop to sew onto one side of the bag. Then I sewed the toggle button on the other side. Now that the bag won't open on its own, I would feel more secure using it to carry things like my wallet and cell phone.

I've seen this fabric popping up in other projects lately too and it looks great. One was a quilt that used more than these four fabrics from the line and it was really a fun quilt.

I should be receiving my next Bagalicious Club kit in the next few weeks so I need to wrap up a few other projects to make room for sewing another fun bag. How exciting!

Happy Stitching!
