Creative ideas for lenthening strap

I bought the medium Kristin hobo this week and love it except that the strap is not quite long enough to go cross body. I've thought about using a key fob between the loop and the clasp or a scarf. What do you think? Any other ideas?

Also I only want it crossbody a couple of times a week.

Mmm... I've seen some people add an extra clasp that uses the same HW. When I saw pictures, I couldn't even tell it was there until they pointed it out! I'm sorry that I can't remember which thread it was, but I'm pretty sure that's been done by someone here. Hope that helps.

Also, this is a great option because the clasps aren't too expensive (I don't think).

I use a valet key fob to extend straps. You can also purchase snap hooks at hardware stores like lowes.
