Simple Handle Question

Hi, I’m a beginner and well I mostly knit scarves (tried other stuff but it wasn’t pretty) so I tried a basic handbag. Now the handles say knit in stockinette however it of course rolls in. Before I sew the handle on to the bag I was wondering do I just leave it and felt or do I fold in half and sew and then put on the bag.

Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

I would seam it or sew it together before felting. The one and only time I felted a stockinette purse strap was a disaster–it was the wonkiest mess I’ve ever seen. (I cut it off and used an i-cord instead :teehee:)

Thanks a bunch! :slight_smile:

Can you make I-cord instead? I-cord is SUPER EASY to knit. Just watch Amy’s video. It also felts beautifully!
