About the Lazy Girl Handy Tabs....
You can add a hanging option to our purses and totes if you want to â€“ itâ€™s completely optional and depends on how you plan to use them. A short ribbon and a clip are nice to hang our smaller bags from your purse handle. A longer ribbon might be nice for a wrist strap. And with a long ribbon and a clip, you can feed the clip through a belt loop and clip it to the ribbon creating a loop. Our Handy Tabs are finished on all edges and ready to sew into place.
On Joan's Blog is a post on choosing and attaching handles to your creations:
