    H, where to get the belt with hooks i.e. the handle from?

      You can use your creativity in making the handle yourself, by getting some old trigger hooks and the leather piece of suitable length. Trigger hooks would be easily available in any key-chain store.
      Alternatively these can be purchased easily from any craft store or online store like ebay etc.

    HOW BIG OF A PIECE OF LEATHER DO I USE AND HOW BIG OF A PIECE OF RIBBON DO I USE ALSO

      It totally depends upon the size of the handbag and size of the knot you required. For a normal bag size leather piece of 10 inch radius and 30 inch ribbon would suffice.
      And again it totally depends upon the look you required.
