Purse Handle

Chain 24. SC in each across. Width is a personal choice. Just remember you need enough width to be able to fold it over and crochet the handle closed.

Length is a personal preference. When you think you are at good length, put the strap on your shoulder and place the purse at the end of it and decide if you are happy with the length.

To add strength to the purse handle and to prevent flexibility, I weaved in twine to the handle.

If you added twine, weave it in.

Slip Stitch close the handle with twine or ribbon on the inside
