How to Add a Shoulder Strap to a Bag

Okay, so first you will need two bits of hardware. For this project, you can use different types of hardware based on your style preferences. But I am going to use a D-ring and a swivel clip; these are great items to start.

 I am gonna use a swivel clip that has a half-inch opening and a D-ring. The opening for both is the same. Then I am going to use two pieces of fabric to reinforce it. You have to decide the measurement of the fabric and cut them based on that. Once I figured that out, I opened the center crease, which is kinda like making double-fold bias tape. Then I put the fabric on my sewing machine and put some top tap stitches on along the edges. Next, slip the D-ring inside of the rivet and enclose it by folding it down. In this case, you have to make sure to secure both layers. After that, stitch the rivet with the bag and then attach the swivel clip with it. Do the same for the other end.
