My new way to make a handle

I'm thinking of making new pouches for my shop.
And I tried to make a new style of handle.
My new handles
I used the cotton strips what I made before. It was too easy...

My way to make a handle 1
I prepared only a piece of cotton cord and some kinds of cotton strips.

My way to make a handle 2
I folded the cord in half and wrap it with a cotton strip leaving 1 inch.

My way to make a handle 3
I changed the color at a point. I didn't sew at all, just covered on the previous strip and went back a little.

My way to make a handle 4
I sewed only the end. That's all!
My new handles
I'll sew this end on my new pouch and put a button on the pouch and use the loop with it(Could I explain well ... ??????).

My new handles
I also made these two for a bag. I'll put them with buttons. For them, I doubled the cotton cord.

Next time, I'll show you my new pouches (* v *)!!!!

Have a good day!
