Make Your Own Vinyl/Leather Look Handbag Straps - A Tutorial
How awesome do these faux leather vinyl handbag straps look? If you want to make some great leather look straps from vinyl that don't show raw edges and messy threads, keep on reading because I can show you how.

Tutorial-How to make interesting leather straps for purses I really like to experiment a lot in bag making.I am bored of the plain straps,so I made these chic straps for my new purse & clicked pics so I could belt out a quick tutorial :) Here is what we are going to make. Isn't it yummy looking:) For this you have to first cut strips from your leather/faux leather/rexin or whatever material you choose.The dimensions are 5" wide by whatever length you want.I have used 20".So cut 2 strips of 5" by desired length. Draw a line on the wrong side in the center of the strip lengthwise like this.Ummm.............OK the line is really faint but I hope you got the point,if not I am here:) Now fold one side lengthwise (wrong side together) so it touches the line in the center & sew. This is what you will get.
