I am very good at making tote bags, but not very good at the handles. Any tips or instructions?

If you plan to carry a lot, you can make the straps all the way around the bottom, using just a longer strip of fabric. If you lay the fabric of the bag down and pin the straps around the entire fabric and sew them when the fabric is flat.


You can even out the load with the extra support from the bottom.

Take a piece of fabric about 4 inches wide by however you want long. Put right together and sew long side and one short end. Then turn inside out using wodden spoon handle or some thing. Sew other short end shut. Then sew some rows the long way. Done

You can buy nylon woven strapping from fabric stores by the yard. This is what is used for backpack straps.
