Annual Birthday Giveaway! 2017

It's become a custom to have a January giveaway. 
πŸ’šπŸ’–πŸ’“  It's my birthday month and I want to share the love.  πŸ’—πŸ’œπŸ’›

While I've been making shoulder straps with swivel clips on the ends all along, there's a new development and I'm excited about it!



Check out the nice ends on these! They are made from a nylon & polyester blend by Dale in Arizona. Using these gives a nice look to the finished strap. 
I like way these taper down so I don't have to use the heavier 2" wide swivel clips. 
You can buy your own strap ends from his shop here: Replacement Shoulder Strap Ends




I've only got a couple of these 2" wide straps left and you can find them over in my Etsy shop HERE.
Then, there are also some 1.5" straps HERE


But, to WIN this one and have it sent to you at no cost, just comment below.

  2. Perfect and beautiful work; I've learned so much from your blog. Was able to blow the dust off a garage sale Ashford loom and weave a strap. Of course, there are a lot of years of practice I've yet to accomplish. Thank you for all your generous help.
