This is my favorite small bag to carry across my shoulder for my phone, lipstick and credit cards. I have added a strap made from fold over elastic that will never make your neck hurt. I have carried it many hours at a time and never need sorry.
Check for the book and elastic at your local quilt or sewing store. If you can’t find them then use these links that I have provided.
