Photo Tutorial “how to make handles for bags to crochet”

Without proposing me so I decided to put together a small tutorial photo of the handle of the bag that I made during the past few weeks.

This bag I did it as part of the challenge of the Group on Facebook "fugitive blogger' where the idea was to use material residues to create bags or blankets to our taste."  I saw this bag on Pinterest and I tempted by the simple and at the same time unusual.

and you can see it in my Etsy where I have it on sale!

The handle I was very intrigued that pictured Pinterest (or any Web site) I found pictures of it, so to use "creative neuron"

Materials handle:
