How to Sew DIY Bag or Purse Straps

Hello Darlings,

Our Tutorial today is on bag straps.

The width of your strap does not have to match the width of your tab that holds the hardware. Just make sure that your clip and the hardware it will clip to are compatible before you get started.


Cut strips that are 4 times as wide as you want your finished strap to be.

If possible, join the strips diagonally as seen above so you won't end up with a 'lump' of fabric in the spot where you are joining strips to make a long strap. After joining, trim the seam allowance to 1/4'' and press the seam open.
