Ursula asked if she could have a key leash fitted. So after I stressed out over; how long needed to be, and how and where to attach it so you could pull it out even when the bag is zipped shut, I decided to attach it on a gusset end.
I had enough lining fabric to piece the strap together and add a swivel lobster clip. I attached it to the outside of the bag, sewing across the topstitching.
Then I flipped it to the inside and fixed it with a rivet. Not my best stitching on the leash, I will wear a hair shirt for that.
Yes, you are right, it is longer in this picture! After trying it with my bunch of keys, I decided it needed to be long enough for them to lie on the bottom, so the weight wouldn't pull the side down. Which meant I had to reattach the bit I had cut off when I thought it would be okay for them to stand on the bottom. Made a lovely job of the join though.
Pink and Spotty!
