Haberdashery for Bag Making

We all love a good bag project; they can be as easy or complex as you like. From a simple tote to a patchwork creation, we have everything you need to complete your bag. Here at Calico Laine, we have a wide range of Haberdashery products to help you go from a few rectangles of fabric to a fully functional bag!

Bag Handles

There are so many ways to create handles for your bag. We have a wide range of ready-made bag handles that can be simply attached to your project, whatever the design. If you have decided on a classy evening clutch bag, our Bella Bag Handle is the perfect way to fasten and carry your bag. Complete with metal loops to thread a cord or chain, this is a stunning metal clasp bag handle. If you are creating something stylish for summer, our 6 Inch Wood Look Plastic Bag Handle is perfect. Why not try this with a fun print or even to jazz-up a canvas tote?

If you need more of a 'strap' than a 'handle' then we have plenty of haberdashery items available. We offer many hardware options such as D-Rings, Bag Shoulder Straps and Snap Hooks. To create your straps, our Webbing range is ideal. Canvas or cotton totes work best with Acrylic or Cotton webbing, whilst more hard-wearing styles would need Polypropylene to ensure it can withstand wear and tear. For something a little more elegant, our Antique Bronze Bag Handle Loops make it easy to interchange between straps and a clasp-fastening.

Bag Accessories

There are many other components that can be added to finish off a bag project to that professional level. For hard-bottomed bags, why not add our Prym Nickel Base Nails for that luxury feel. For added design and protection, you can add Leather Attaching Pads to the base of your straps.

To ensure the fabric of your bag is stable, you will need to add interfacing. For most bag projects you will need a slightly heavier weight. Vilene Iron-On Heavy Interfacing is a great all-round heavy interfacing. However, when creating a sturdy base bag, Decovil is a great product.
