Fabric Covered Strap Connector Tutorial

Fabric Covered Strap Connector Tutorial

Learn how to add this unique hardware to your handmade bags and purses for a customized look. Cover the center of the connector with your desired fabric choice including quilter’s weight cotton, cork, vinyl*, leather*, canvas, and other bag making materials. These connectors are very strong and they add a high-end finish to your bag!  You can find them here!

*This connector works best when you use material that is 1mm thick or less. My hardware testers and I have tested various types of materials and thicknesses to determine the maximum thickness of fabric allowed.

I’ve provided a Video Tutorial and Free PDF Instructions for you to quickly and easily learn. I hope you enjoy these tutorials and learn something useful to use in your own bag making.
