Leather Handles (1"-wide)
Love leather? These durable 1"-wide leather handles are perfect for using with my Caravan Tote sewing pattern and Wool + Wax Tote pattern (and for the Hillside Tote and Redwood Tote crossbody strap - the 54" length) as well as any other sewing project where you need handles!
The 54" length can be used for a crossbody strap or you can cut it down to two shorter handles or any length you might need.
- You will receive two 1"-wide handles, both are cut to the length selected below (choose 16" or 28").
- For the 54" length, you will receive ONE 1"-wide handle.
- Included is a small scrap of leather for test sewing.
See below for choosing colors, tips on sewing with leather, and additional information.
Sewing with leather handles:
Leather is sourced from a US tannery and hand cut by me. Please be aware that colors do vary from monitor to monitor, I have tried my best to accurately capture the leather’s true color. Leather is a natural product, minute blemishes may be present. Great care has gone into creating a beautiful handle that will stand the test of time. This leather is cut from a single cow hide, the top side is finished and the back side is re-dyed and gum pasted (except Rustic) at the tannery for longevity and durability. If you have any questions about these handles, please contact me prior to ordering!
* I cannot guarantee that your specific sewing machine will be able to sew through either handle type.
Handles are shipped USPS First Class. Please contact me if you require a different shipping method.
Photos shown of finished projects are for demonstration purposes, this listing is for the leather only.
More projects using leather handles can be found in my book, Handmade Style (the Zip Top Tote and Market Bag both use 1"-wide handles). The Wool + Wax Tote pattern also uses these handles. You can use the 54" length for the crossbody strap of the Redwood Tote and Hillside Tote (1"-wide strap is compatible with the Redwood Tote Hardware kit)
