How to add a detachable wristlet strap

Having a strap or handle on your bag or purse gives you something to grab onto and offers a bit of added security so you have less chance of losing your purse while you’re out and about. Adding a detachable strap to a zipper pouch or a clutch purse is easy to do using using a simple lobster clasp and d-ring, plus the metal hardware always adds a professional finish to your bag.


  • One piece of fabric 1-1/2″ x 2″ for the loop and one piece of fabric 1-1/2″ x 15″ for the strap. This will give you a finished strap of 3/8″ wide by 7″ long. You can adjust these measurements as needed.
