So if this does not fit the space you’ve kept then there are two options for this little character.
For my pull tie, I just held a few of the coloured yarns and used a 10mm crochet hook to do a row of chains for the length needed.
To make the strap, I just held all the yarns together and made a long length of chain (with a 10 mm crochet hook). At the end of the length needed, I doubled back on the same ch, doing an sc in each ch all the way to the end. If you feel you want a thicker strap, just double back on your sc’s all the way to the end. Once satisfied with the thickness, fasten off and weave in ends.
