Make smart choices with crochet purse handles. Whether you're making your own handles or crocheting your own store-bought handles, use small, tight stitches in a non-stretch yarn, such as cotton worked in a single crochet stitch through both loops. Choose bag frames with handles and that give great shape to a handbag. Wooden and plastic bag handles are readily available and will last over time, and are also made of fabric, belts, string, etc. You can also find handles that are made. Fix the handles correctly.
