Zerba Handles Tutorial

Here are some step by step directions on how to put the handle together, with pictures!

What you'll need:
  • approximately 45" of 1 1/4" cotton webbing
  • one slide
  • two swivel hooks

    Step 1: Satin stitch close to each end of the webbing with matching thread so that it won't ravel. Slip webbing through slide under center bar.
Step 2: Loop end of webbing back over center bar and under right side. Stitch in place.

Step 3: Put one end of webbing through the swivel hook .

Step 4: Slip the end of the webbing under the right side of the slide to form a loop for the swivel hook.

Step 5: Put the end of the webbing over the center of the slide and under the left side.

Step 6: Slip the webbing end into the last swivel hook and fold the webbing back on itself to form a small loop. Stitch in place and you're done!
