just a reminder to put in seam allowances, otherwise it will be difficult to get the shape you want out of your handle, and another suggestion would be to make the handle and the purse two seperate pieces, like so_

top(handle)
 ___________
 l     _____     l
 l__/        \___l

bottom
 ___________
 l                  l
 l                  l
 l                  l
 l__________l

and then sew them together when you are sewing in the lining. 
hope this helps! and if you have any q's about my suggestions, pm me!
