Added additional orange paint to the straps, then toned down with 3 colors of spray paint and some gold stencil.
Took apart a leather strap belt and used 5 of the narrow straps to create the drawstring. Tied the ends and secured with a brown strap holder. Thought about putting beads on the ends of the straps, but decided that would move it towards the 'cute' side.
Took pictures and then realized that I have not yet put on polyacrylic. Will do that tomorrow and then consider this one finished.
I'll be listing this one of Etsy.
