Hi, Darlene, Not sure if this will help, not knowing what style of seagrass handle you are building. If it's a braided handle, you can gently push thin wire into the center of at least one piece of seagrass in each bundle used to make the braid. Making leather handles for baskets, I will glue one sturdy piece of wire between a braid and a flat strip of leather. You can also imbed wire into a bundle of seagrass and wrap the outside of the bundle with seagrass for a thicker handle. I don't use a lot of seagrass so not sure this will help you.
