felted beads would look great. In fact you could probably sell them on to a store or something.  Have them pay you instead of buying their expensive supplies Wink

This is soooo clever, and way cute.  I love that you can customize them.

How do they look on the purses?  I wouldn't know how to attatch them. Tongue

That's the fun part, you can customize them to what you like. You can extend the wire and make them half-circle shapped. I bet you could even do full circle ones.

I use these perticular handles for my book purses, so I'm thinking that they would look fabulous on any square bottomed bag (I can even see them looking nice on a round bag too). Attaching them is simple. I'll have to get around to posting some pictures of what they look like on actual handbags to give you a better idea.

I like those a lot.   Cheesy

I have about 10kg of wooden beads (don't ask!) like those in your tutorial and now I know how to use some of them.   Wink

AS LizLow said, they can be customised to look perfect with anything.

Thank you   Grin

Hey no problem folks... I too hate paying loads for handles... which is why I decided to share with my fellow craftsters.

I promise that I will get around to posting pics. I just need to upload everything, resize the pics, and add them to photobucket.
