How to Make Sturdy Straps for Purses and Bags

Step 1 Cut out your straps from both your fabric of choice and some durable interfacing or canvas.  The width of your straps should be twice as wide as you want them.  The length of course is up to you!
Step 2 Heat up your iron and iron the edges of your straps in towards the center.  If you cut your fabric right, the raw edges should meet in the middle.  I cut mine a little too narrow so I'm only folding them over part of the way, but they still will be pretty sturdy straps.
Step 3 Once you iron over the edges, fold your strap in half and iron it down again.  Your strap is now 4 layers of fabric and interfacing thick.  Pin this fold down to keep it together while you take your straps to the sewing machine!
Step 4 Sew your straps closed, and then top-stitch along the fold as well to make it look more uniform.  If you want, you can sew a couple more lines down the center of your strap to really hold it together and make it stronger yet.

Even the Michael Kors Outlet that did not reach the dizzying heights of success as some of Michael Kors's best sellers were still very, very well made leather handbags. One such Michael Kors Outlet Store Online that became a fashion icon was the Michael Kors Wristlet Sale.

  2. Tratar de encontrar el verdadero negocio en bolsos baratos cuando se trata de comprar es un dolor. Conozca el valor o el valor de un bolso de mano. Esto se aplica a cualquier artículo que pueda comprar, pero lo está buscando a un precio reducido.
