Leather straps in Light Brown, Dark Brown, or Black.  

Length 45" -- more than enough for a cross-body bag. This will make two handles for most hand-strap bags.
Width 1.25" 
approx 1/8" thickness

THESE ARE 1.25" width straps. I also carry 3/4" wide straps.

100% real leather straps made for my sewing patterns. Leather straps add a classic touch to any bag and work well to speed up the bag-making process. NO HARDWARE NEEDED!

My leather straps are completely sewable, meaning you do not need to use rivets or hardware to attach them to bags. 

Here's a video demonstratinging how I sew them right into the seam; no hardware is needed.

 *BAG photo is the Santorini tote in peach croc with 3/4" wide leather straps SEWN into the seam. No rivets used!

Shipping & Returns

Hello! We ship Monday - Friday and some Saturdays. On US Federal Holidays no mail moves - you *may* see a label print, but it will leave the next mailing day. If we take a short break for vacation, it is announced ahead of time on all social media channels and in the newsletter. Are you signed up for my emails? They often contain treasures!  

Orders will ship within 72 hrs. Super huge orders can take 3 days (these are usually wholesale orders and probably don't pertain to you).

PRE ORDERS ship as stated in the listing -- usually these take some time to arrive. IF YOU COMBINE in stock items with a preorder they will ship TOGETHER at one time. Make a separate order if you need in-stock items sooner. Thanks!!


We ship USPS First class mail and Priority Mail always, never ground. We ship UPS if you choose UPS, OR if it's more economical and faster than USPS.

We DO ship to Canada through USPS or UPS if you choose it. We do NOT cover import fees. It is worth an email if you're concerned about the cost, before placing your order. I will weigh and estimate cost before processing.

Local pick up is an option! This lets you pick up from our front porch. Items are on the pink cart right inside (out of the weather). The door is unlocked, so help yourself. We most likely won't know you're here unless you opera sing. That being said, don't choose this option unless YOU can pick it up. I don't deliver. 😂😄

Tracking info is ALWAYS sent by email as soon as the label is printed. Check your junk or promotions folders; it could have landed in one of them. After the initial tracking entry when the label is printed, additional tracking updates are provided by the carrier. Follow the tracking link you received by email to check the status on the carrier's site.


Most items arrive within 5-7 business days, many orders will arrive sooner than that! Our mail system is pretty amazing when compared to the rest of the world and we are so grateful to the Carriers that make it happen! Once in a while a hiccup occurs. NO WORRIES! Let me know via email: and I will fix it ASAP.  😄

Vinyl is usually rolled and either wrapped in tissue or a protective bag, and sent that way. Some vinyl (soft metallic and moonglow for example) can be folded without causing damage, you can opt to iron it from the back side as well.  In any case, if your vinyl arrives with wrinkles you can simply place it in the sunshine OR use a hair dryer to warm it flat again, or iron it (wrong side only). If you think your vinyl is damaged, please email me and I will take care of you. 😊

**Soft metallic vinyl, Stardust, croc, and Moonglow vinyl CAN be ironed from the wrong side. See my Guide for Sewing Vinyl for more info.

If I made a mistake on your order OR if something arrives damaged, email me so I can fix it. It's rare, but I'm human. Thank you for your grace. 

Returns are accepted for damaged items and we will send you a return label. Returns for "changing your mind" are accepted at YOUR return shipping expense, and will be processed with a restocking fee of 10%, but I'm a fair person so just email me and we'll talk. 

Thank you for supporting my small business! YOU have made a huge difference in my family's life and I think about it every single day. 

-Natalie 🥰

Leather straps

First timer with these leather bad boys and the simplicity of using them exceeded my expectations. Super easy to sew and the strength of a mama bear. 😁 I’ll be using these again and again.

Sew In Leather Straps

I love these sew in leather straps. They are soft but sturdy and very easy to sew with my vintage Singer 401A, Singer 404 or the Bernina 930. I will be ordering more.
Thanks Colleen
