The thermal stitch creates a nice and sturdy strap for crochet bags! This pattern walks you through the process of adding a strap to your favorite crochet bags and even explains how to crochet onto a D ring or split key ring for added durability.
The thermal stitch, like any crochet stitch, will stretch a little bit, but it is a tried and true method for making robust bag straps.
"This crochet and leather hand bag is a very simple design for a very elaborate sounding concept. Don't worry, it's really simple though. If you can draw a straight line with a ruler, squeeze a hole punch and crochet some very basic stitches, you can make a ton of cool leather nd crochet projects. Why leather and crochet? Some items like purses get the most wear in specific places, like the bottom. Leather in those spots means a longer life span of your bag etc, but it also adds another design element that totally changes the aesthetic. So besides a great look and longer life of your item, it's really fun and challenging!"

Crocheted in two colors of yarn, this pattern looks dip dyed and ready for a day on the town.
