Thanks a lot to my lovely readers for your comments on my first handbag! When I showed the bag to my friends and family they loved the bag and the handles. So here is a tiny tutorial on how I made them.
This the banded bag handle. More picture of the bag you can view here.
As listed in the picture + sewing needle and thread.
I used gold lace and a strip cut out from the fabric I used for the bag. Finished the edges with pinking shears.
Place the first strip at a diagonal and fold and hand sew along the yellow line. Leave the thread and needle.
Hold the stitched part firm and start winding the tape at the same angle along the ring. When the ring is covered completely sew the other end of the tape and knot.
Repeat with the contrast tape in the opposite direction leaving gaps in between. And Tada Its Done!!
I used a single handle and used Velcro to fasten the bag opening.It works as it is a small bag.
The same 'no glue' 'no fuss' technique can be used to make bangles as well;)
