I had some scraps left over from my Valentines Day Chairbackers, so I thought I would play with vinyl some more! Savvy loves her chairbacker, she wants to carry it around everywhere so I decide to make her a purse!
It is a smaller version of the Valentines Day chairbacker! For a complete tutorial go here.
Since I know this purse will receive some abuse from my daughter, I thought I might need to beef up the handle... So here is what I did:
a) Punch two holes above the pocket on each side. Also cut your vinyl tubing to the desired handle length, and cut out a long piece of ribbon. (We will double the ribbon.)
b) Lace long piece of ribbon through the hole you just made and through one of the holes in the binding. Even up the sides, so you have two equal lengths of ribbon.
c) Tie the ends of the ribbon with a piece of wire, pull through the handle.
d)Put one length of ribbon through the hole you made in step a, and the other length of ribbon through a binding hole. Pull ribbon tight to remove any slack.
e) Tie the ends of the ribbon in a double square not.
f) Your finished handle.
I love to link at these great sites, come join the party.
