I recently made an Ilsa Handlebar Basket with my new "sundborn garden" fabric as the lining. I decided to take photos of the handlebar steps because I thought it might be a nice mini-tutorial.

Here's a step-by-step photo guide to folding and gluing the handlebar straps for the Ilsa Strappy Handlebar Basket (the version with the front straps). The Basic Ilsa Handlebar Basket and the Lilla Handlebar Basket are made in a similar manner.

Step 1

When cutting out the straps remember to flip the pattern over in order to mirror the 2 straps so that you have a right and a left side strap (follow the cutting layout illustration).

You might also want to read up on "Oilcloth and Glue" - remember to use only a little bit of glue. Fabric-Tac glue is recommended.
