When I make a bag, I start by cutting out a bottom the size and shape of the bag I have in mind. I long ago recognized that sewing the double thickness bottoms one at a time was very inefficient. If I have a sheet of the material sewn up ahead of time, it helps me get started a lot faster on a new bag.
I have also been frustrated with three big bins of straps of various sizes that needed organizing to be more useful.
To address both of these issues, I spent several hours over the weekend organizing and sewing straps into big sheets for bag bottoms, both yellow and orange. Here are the sheets I came up with so I am now ready to take off making more bags when I have time and inclination.
