The strap can be pulled through to make either a hand-held or shoulder strap.
I don't think I can stop making these for everyone I know!!!

These are wonderful! I keep coming back to look at the pics. I bet if you used adjustable straps, you could have a strap long enough to go across the chest & over the opposite shoulder.

I have a quilted tote with too-short handles and it needs a new liner, I wonder ....
if I cut the handles in half, I can use them to make the loops - sew them down in between the bag and the new liner. Then make a new strap like your bags, maybe adjustable to make it even longer so it reaches the opposite shoulder. hmmmm...

Great idea! I like the blocks on yours. I had some little tagua rings that I wanted to use, so here's how I did mine:

I like it. I'd also like a quick explanation on how they work.

madfishmonger -- i just sewed little loops to the rings and attached those when i sewed the lining to the outside. the handle is one big loop that passes through all 4 rings. hope that makes sense!

Those ARE AMAZING! I especially love the second one and the last one. I love the idea of the adjustable handles! Great job on all of them!
