Super clear, easy to see instructions. Thank you for putting this class together on something that is such a nice-to-have on any bag, and indeed, can be tricky to get right! I'm going to be able to up-grade my bags now! Thank you & looking forward to your next class too! :)

Making something out of not much for a long time

Watch this class before you make a strap yourself, and you won't have to unpick because you attached the various hardware in the wrong order.
