I making a purse that I've knit and am lining with fabric and now am wondering how to make a purse strap. This isn't a tiny bag and the yarn is really stretchy (Patons SWS), so I'll need a pretty strong strap and a good way to secure it. Have any of you dealt with this issue?:shrug:

sometimes I will buy a handle for my knit purses...you can do a I-cord as well...on knitty gritty they showed making an I-cord and then stringing piping through it to give it more strengh...sometimes they will knit 3 I-cords and then braid them or twist them together...
