down the side of flap. Join in purse body.

Row 1: Ch 6, sc in 2nd cha and in each ch across: 5 sc. Ch 1, turn.

Note: You will be working through both the strap and the purse in sts

this on both sides of the purse and then will sew together the strap to
make a contiuous strap.

Row 6 down from purse top in 2nd sc from side seam, sc in both first sc

Note: if the strap is not long enough you can always add more rows. When

side. This makes a more even joining when you sew the straps together.

Repeat for other strap. Weave the 2 straps last rows together.
