I see that some of you use the prefabricated purse handles that you buy in the store or online.  I was wondering if anyone has made their own out of something they had around the house?

I mean besides dragging out the jigsaw and literally making your own, I'm not feeling that adventurous today, and I would still have to go buy the wood.

I've used aquarium tubing, fabric, an old belt, ribbon..  You can also  buy an old purse from a thrift shop and take the handles off and re-use them.

I recently posted this:

I'm going to try it as soon as I have time to get the materials..

and someone has posted a tutorial on how to make your own beaded handles here:

Here's my aquarium tubing handles:

Good luck, let us know what you come up with.

Thanks for the ideas!  I'm off to go scour every nook and cranny to see what I come up with.

More greast ideas PrincessJ!!!
I know people who fill the tubing with beads or confetti or whatever they have lying around - gives a neat look.
I have done a bit of 'house' shopping for handles too - it's amazing what you can come up with...maybe that should be the next purse challenge (when was the last one???)
I also simply use the fabric of the bag braided.

Ooh, that would look neat with those rainbow sprinkles you can put on cupcakes!
