DIY STRAP FOR A CLUTCH

I’m sorry for the lack of posts on the blog but I am working on an important project and taking online courses. My brain is full with new info and lots of ideas but I shall tell you everything later when I am ready to share. Meanwhile I decided to write a step by step guide on making a strap for the knitted clutch. I promised to make it so here it is.

This strap is very easy to make using basic macrame knots but the result look really great and it will be a perfect match for a knitted or crochet purse or a jersey clutch and will be a nice addition to your summer outfit. 

For a strap 20 cm long you will need: metal ring, a lobster clasp, 4 m jersey (t-shirt) yarn, sewing needle.

Step 1.

Thread one end of yarn through a lobster clasp. Make sure the ends of yarn from both sides are of the same length.

Step 2.

Thread both ends of yarn through a ring and fix it on a needed distance from the lobster clasp. That is the length of your strap. We need 20 cm here.

Step 3.

Now thread the ends of yarn through the lobster clasp again. Make sure the distance between the clasp and the ring is the same as needed. Place the long strands on both sides. Now you have four strands in the middle (the base) and two longer working strands.

Step 4. 

Knot 1. Bring the right strand over the base strands and place the left strand on top of the right one.  Thread the left strand under the base strands and up through the loop made by the right strand. Pull the long strands to tighten the knot.

Continue tying knots 1 and 2 till the end of the strap. With the sewing needle hide the ends of yarn inside the strap.

How to use it: You’ll have to sew the ring to one corner of the clutch and clasp the lobster clasp to the ring making a loop. This way you can wear it the purse on your wrist. If your want the strap to be on both sides of the purse you ‘ll have to use two lobster clasps for the strap and then clasp them to the rings sewn to both sides of the purse. I used this method for this purse.
