How to Attach an I-cord to a Knit Handbag

The easiest way to attach an i-cord to a bag is to go down about 1" from the top rim of the bag and in about 2" from the sides and poke a hole in the felted fabric with a metal pointed knitting needle, remove the needle, and use a larger needle in the holes, until the hole is a little smaller around than your i-cord you'll be threading through it. You can attach grommets to the holes for a finished look, or simply thread the i-cord through the holes you've made.

My candy corn bag, on www.BigSis2.etsy.com has grommets in the holes mentioned above

It took 8 grommets because I did a "paper-bag" style fold and pushed the needles through 4 layers of fabric to make the holes on each side.
