Jodi from Sew Fearless made a set of leather and cotton belting handles for a bag she’s making. The core of the handles is the cotton belting, with leather strips sewn on it. The leather is sewn to both sides of the belting, making the handles reversible. The handles are attached to the bag with leather tabs and D-rings. She shares a tutorial showing how she did it, and also gives some tips for sewing with leather. Go to Sew Fearless for her tutorial.
