I created this chain-like purse handle because I had such trouble finding unusual and interesting handles to finish off my own purse creations. Then I looked in my closet and found some purses I loved that needed new handles and realized I could refresh these purses and continue to use them for years rather than toss them away! Recycle, upcycle and recreate! I love it! So I decided to offer patterns for handles for those other like-minded individuals . The handle is finished with a D ring and carabinger for easy clip-on capability. The pattern is for a 26 inch handle but includes directions for making handles to any size.
Pop tab crochet is fun and a great way to recycle and use up all those pesky little aluminum tabs that seem to come on everything! In addition, the combination of crochet and metal makes a wonderful fashion statement that’s very trendy in this eco friendly day and age.
Studs, chains, rhinestones and beads are all the rage and add bling to a multitude of common daily household and personal items. Pop tab crochet is a fun way to upcycle your own items or create glitzy items to give as gifts. It works great for jewelry, belts, purses and even embellishments for other DIY projects. The limit is really your own imagination.
