    Greetings Kathryn,
    How big is the purse? I'm not familiar with that one. Rough dimensions are fine, I'm just curious.

    Your photos look like they came from the Stylebook app. I've created a few...

    Greetings,
    Very nicely done. Bravo! I've done a four strand Matthew Walker knot before, but the Simple version looks very nice. I'll have to try it. I love the beads, too. So many great ideas! ...

    Greetings,
    Would you share photos of each of these knots, please? I learned to make the dragonfly knot and several others, but I'm always on the lookout for a great zipper pull knot. Thanks! elisa

    Greetings,
    Another o-ring fan here. Too many key straps can get tangled, so a split ring (from my old key ring) is added to my gear. The key strap is clipped to the bag, with the split on the...

    Greetings,
    I clip a key strap to the draw-cord on the stuff sack. Attach it close to the stuff sack, so that the draw-cord closure keeps it tight. It works a treat attached to o-rings.

    Greetings,
    I am not privy to the pricing decisions at Tom Bihn, so I can't answer that. I believe they consider the cost of materials, the cost of labor, and marketing. No doubt there are other...

    Greetings,
    I don't fold mine, so I can't help there. I stow it flat in a larger bag, mostly when traveling.
