DIY – Attaching bag feet

Attaching handbag feet is easy. Simply measure in about 3/4″ from each corner of the base of your bag and make a mark. This measurement can be adjusted depending on your bag, and if you have a very large bag you can add an additional one or two feet in the middle.

Determine the placement for your feet using quilting pins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you’re happy with the placement, remove the pin and mark the position with a pencil or a sharpie.

Then you need to make a hole. Depending on the type of handbag foot you use, you need to make either one or two holes – carefully – using a seam ripper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Push the prongs through from the bottom …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… and on the inside, place the washer over the prongs and press the prongs open.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Iron a small piece of fusible interfacing over the top to keep the prongs in position and prevent them from catching on the lining. If attaching handbag feet to a purchased handbag, to conceal the prongs simply iron a small patch of coordinating fabric over the prongs using wonder-under fusible webbing, or glue the patch on using fabric glue.

 

It only takes a few minutes and they make such a difference to the look of your bag!
