Strapping a bag!

Does anyone have any tips for attaching straps to a bag? ie: what holds them on most securely, how to make it look pretty, etc? Both the straps and the border of the bag to which they will be attached are in garter stitch.

THANKS!!

not sure what kind of strap you are looking for
if you are still knitting you can bund off the parts you are done with and just use 2 ends of the ball of yarn to make 1 or 2 strips to be stitched or tied together when done
I made I-chord ropes and just punched them through the fabric to make like belt loops
