I saw a cute little tote/wristlet and decided to try to do something similar. The result is this little bag which measures about 7" tall (not counting the straps.) I tried to work out a strap solution that didn't involve any separate sewing. This closure is close, I think but still needs a little tinkering. I am not much of a handbag person, but this may be just what I need for carrying around some yarn and a crochet hook. The yarn felted much fuzzier than usual - not quite sure why that happened.
