Finished back yesterday, just grafted two sides together. Looks a little odd, but it works.
Most likely going to block before seaming. I think it would really benefit from that. (also, still considering lining.)
Also thinking about learning just enough crochet to do the loop & strap.

Lo these many months later, I learned how to make a crochet chain! It’s on the short side, but looks cute. I’ve woven in ends, and I’m planning on keeping it at the office for carrying phone/wallet/keys.
