I love this tutorial for how to make your own padded bag straps or handles. I had no idea they were this easy. The rounded ends on these are nicely finished, just perfect for sewing onto your favorite bag. One of teh best bag handles sewing tutorials.

Do you sigh at the price of pre-made bag handles? We know that we sure do! We love the look of leather handles and will use them on more special bags, but sometimes it’s nice to have a different handle on everyday fabric bags too, without having to opt for an expensive pre-made one, or just a standard flat-fold handles.

That’s where today’s tutorial comes in handy. Now you can create your own padded bag handles in exactly the right size, length and color that you need. It’s easier than you might think to create beautiful handles. Sarah will show you how.

You’ll need…
1/4 yard of quilting cotton
2 strips 2” x 28 1/2” of Soft & Stable (fabric covered foam batting) or similar foam such as headliner
Large spool of thread or circle measuring 1 1/2 ” in diameter
