My micro luggage is still one of my favorite bags and has sentimental value to me. It's made me so sad that since I've had my daughter, I haven't been able to juggle a handheld bag and a toddler. After lusting over Lindy's, I learned that there are sellers on etsy who make shoulder straps that connect the way the Lindy's bag does and deided to bite the bullet and order a couple. I'm so excited because it matches my bag well and now I can use it over the shoulder when I'm in a hurry. It may not look super perfect, but I think it works..

This is absolutely genius! May I ask which Etsy shop did you buy the strap from? Thanks!
Thanks! It was from a store called shoulderbagstrap. It came from Hong Kong to here in the states so it took a bit of time but totally worth it to me.

Thanks so much for sharing. I had posted if anyone had found a hack to add a shoulder strap. Thinking of getting the exact same size. Can you share a mod shot of you using the shoulder strap?

I feel torn about this look as I can already see the handles getting overstretched and once that happened, they won’t bounce back I’m afraid.

Yeah, this doesn't look great for the bag, but if practicality means the most to you then it's a purpose-filling hack, sure. I just can't help but worry that you'll regret having done this later if the handles get ruined for good.
