Question Easiest way to make straps for bags??

Hey Crafty Mamas (& maybe a Papa or 2)-

I'm making some canvas library bags/diaper bags to sell but can't figure out the most time efficient way of making the straps for the bags. Any ideas???

I am ordering a 2" bias tape maker tool but once that's folded in half, I just don't think an inch is wide enough. Am I right? Wrong?

As of right now I've been just doing it by hand but jeesh, it's beating me up doing it like that!!! PLUS, sometimes the ironing and lining up is a tid bit off and doesn't look professional.

Any crafty people out there that make bags that would be willing to divulge their secret would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!

Feel free to PM me if you don't want to put your secret way out here for all to see.

Thanks in advance!!!
