Tips and Techniques Tula Pink Webbing


Most ByAnnie patterns are designed for you to make fabric tubes into which you pull strapping for strength and stability.

The strapping is usually cut shorter than the fabric to avoid bulk in seams.

If you'd like to use webbing instead of fabric-covered strapping for your handles in ByAnnie patterns, here are some tips:

1. Do NOT cut the fabrics for the pieces that you'll replace with webbing. In most cases, this will include handles, carrying strap, and carrying strap tabs.

2. In most cases, you will need to cut the webbing longer than what the pattern calls for so that you can extend the pieces into the seams. So, cut the webbing to the length that the pattern directs for cutting the FABRIC handles and straps.

3. Keep in mind that the webbing tends to fray easily along the ends, so be sure to burn the ends or cover them with something to prevent fraying. Ends may be covered with fabric by folding the fabric so that there are no raw edges showing. Then use the fabric to enclose the ends of the webbing. Alternatively, you can cut a small piece of clear vinyl and fold it over the ends. Stitch about 1/8" to 1/4" from the edge of the webbing and then trim the vinyl even with the stitching and webbing.--

Happy stitching, Annie Unrein

We opted to make our handles using Tula Pink webbing which makes super fast work of a normally tedious process.

   When working with nylon webbing, I like to slightly singe each cut end with a lighter to eliminate fraying;  you can also use a product like Fray Check.

Webbing Cutting Instructions:

• For the handle tabs, cut four 12” strips
• For the handles, cut two 19” strips


To Make Handle Tabs:

Insert 1 ½” of webbing into rectangle ring, fold over the webbing and sew to secure.  I like to make a ¾” box with an X inside.  I stitch this twice for extra security.  Make 4. 

The other end of the webbing piece gets inserted in the bottom seam - see illustration below


To Make Handles:

Mark a line 4 ½” from each side.  Fold the webbing in half lengthwise and stitch between these marked lines.  I stitched at 1/8” intervals to secure—your thread will show, so pay attention to both your top and bottom thread.


To Complete Handle Units:

Follow the instructions in Section IIC of the pattern.

The colors are great and the webbing goes with all Tula fabric. The order process was painless and delivered timely. I purchased this for my grown daughter who buys every Tula Pink fabric she can and is a huge fan. I know she will make good use of it in her projects.

    I purchased the tula everglow in control kit. The coordinating fabric is giving me trouble. I am using a 90/14 superior topstitch needle and have my machine set to woven heavy. My needle does not seem to want to go thru the fabric and is sticking. I have made many in control bags but I have never had this issue. The fabric seems to be heavier than usual and has a sheen to it. Any ideas would be appreciated. I am considering using another fabric to finish up my bag binding or trying a sharper needle but not sure it will go thru all the layers. Let me know if others have had this issue. tx Jeanne
