OK ... gonna show you what I mean: http://home.twcny.rr.com/kittykatz/
This is one purse I made and used ribbon for the handle (strap). I plan on using either cut felt or ribbon, or pearls for the straps, so no sewing is needed ... what I need help with is how to ATTACH the handles to the purse.
For this one I used 'brads', pushed them through from the outside, through the ribbon on the inside and opened it up to fasten. That works out ok, but I'd like to learn another way, where I could just sew them into the purse along with everything else, to make it easier and less steps.
Hope that explains it better.
