Terrific Tip Tuesday: Attaching Handles by Hand


Welcome to the Wednesday edition of Terrific Tip Tuesday! It’s possible that I flat out forgot to post yesterday. (It’s been a busy week; Sara Lawson is in town visiting the Triad MQG!) I really like the look of leather handles and love to use the ones that come prepunched. These need to be hand stitched to attach. Because the pressure points on handles are at the top, I like to start at the bottom and sew one stitch on the right, then one stitch on the left and keep going back and forth.


The back will look like shoelaces. This provides reinforcement.


And the finished product looks like this. I used all six strands of embroidery floss. It makes for a strong attractive attachment.
