Bag Strap Help

I'm making a bag.  The strap was supposed to be the same as the exterior material, but I've decided I want the strap to be a guitar strap instead.  I'm going to sew in nubs of the original strap and sew a button or something to it to secure the guitar strap.

The exterior is dark grey upholstery fabric and the flap lining is a blue and green flower pattern.  The interior liner is orange with green striped pockets.

I'm not sure which strap to get.  I was thinking the orange one, but I'll be taking the bag to Ireland with me and I don't want to stand out too much.  I'm kind of really digging on the grey victorian one.  They're all Couch.

I like the orange one the best. But it does stand out. I like the grey one second best.

I love the orange one but I think the second and fourth one would work better.

I think the fourth one will work best.

Also, please send me the bag as I want it.

I'm quite partial to the black one with the white bird.

bottom left is best, the black one with the bird. Its very simple and it wont scream "HEY LOOK AT ME" but is very fashionable looking if you do draw some attention. The orange one is just too much.  and the second one just doesn't flow imo. The bottom right is nice but between 3 and 4, number 3 wins. Just my two cents.

I like the orange one the most, but the grey would be my 2nd choice.

Standing out is cool, standing out in a colour that has potential to enrage the locals and make them think you're making a pro-protestant statement while you're just trying to enjoy a nice holiday.... probably not so cool....

lol.  Wait.  Did you read my fb comment?  Yeah, I might be going with the grey one specifically because orange is a loaded color in Ireland, even though I'll be on the protestant side of the border.  I'm going with a practicing catholic and will be going to Mass with her, so walking in with protestant orange may be a bit much.

haha, no, I hadn't seen you post these there as well, but now I have looked up your comment!  I would like to think orange is just seen as orange too, and it probably is, 90% of the time, but I made sure not to crack out my patriotic Dutch colours when we were there, just in case! : )

Yeah, the orange one rocks.  I'm getting the grey on or my bag, but I expect to get the orange one within the next year for my guitar.

Coach - they're all vegan, but cost TONS.  A more expensive guitar strap for me is $25 and these are $40 to $50.  :o 

I'm waiting to see if I get any cash for Christmas, otherwise I'll have to wait until January or February to afford it.  If I get even $20, it'll offset enough for me to buy it in December.  Freaking sucky economy.

I just want to learn how to play my guitar! YEARS ago I was told by a handful of people that if I got a guitar they would teach me how to play so that year for Christmas I asked for an acoustic guitar, got it (which is a lot because we don't have a lot of money) and they all bailed on me. Now I have a pretty dust collector.

Minke - Learn Neil Young songs.  If you learn a few basic chords you can play a lot of his music.  There's a lot of Neil tab music online and you can watch people play his songs on yt.
