In Sewing Tutorial, Tips & techniques

I’m excited to share the first post in a new series I’m calling: Tips for Better Bag Building. Over the years I’ve come across so many tips and techniques that it just wouldn’t be right to keep those to myself, would it? So here we go!

tips: adjustable strap

The first tip is: How to Make and Adjustable Strap. This is really very simple but it’s one of those things that can be a bit of a mind bender. Watch the 2 minute video below for a quick demo and explanation:


Adjustable straps not only add function to your bag, they also give it a more polished look! (The hardware shown in the video is part of my Jet Pack Hardware Kit available in my etsy shop)

I hope you found this helpful. In future posts I’d love to feature one of your favorite bag making tips. Got questions about how to do something? Let me know and I’ll add it to my list of tips and tricks to share here on the blog.
