Super Simple Purse Strap

_DSC0878

FINALLY!!

Our move is complete and we are unpacked. I am so glad to have that behind us. Things are starting to get back into a routine and I am so happy for that.

In the process of moving, I somehow lost my CROJO. Talk about a bummer!

I made a post in my Community Group asking for an instant gratification project to help  me out of my funk. The response was AWESOME. There were lots of great ideas. From those ideas, I chose to go with a small clutch/crossbody bag.

You can find the FREE pattern for the Dayla Clutch/Crossbody Bag HERE!!!

I knew that I wanted a simple strap to go with it so I scoured my yarn stash and found myself inspired by some Sashay yarn that I have had FOREVER. Please don’t fret if you don’t have any Sashay yarn hidden away in your stash. This will work great with any super bulky – size 6 yarn.

This strap is very sturdy and can be used for any purse. It could even be used as a replacement strap for a store bought purse.

Here is what you will need:

Step 5: Once desired length is met, insert your hook into the second D-Ring. If you are making a wristlet, attach it to the same D-Ring that your other side is attached to.

Step 8: Thread the “tail” through the large/blunt needle. Weave in and out of the chain 3-4 times. Cut the remaining tail.
