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:
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.
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.
