Yorkiemischief - did you try the straps the way I do them?  It has helped quite a few people.  They come out perfect every time Smiley and are super easy.  I posted  up a tutorial on how to do them awhile back although it doesn't get seen too often - it's not listed up on the tutorial list... I did request it to be added a long time ago along with another tutorial I made but it has not appeared yet...

Hey Craftydeb!!!  Fantastic tutorial on the handles!  I see you have a Janome  Wink  Mine is similar and I, too, love my F foot.

Anyway, to my point - I'm sad that your tute hasn't been included in the list because I think it's a great way to do the handles.  Would you like me to edit mine on the first page to include yours as well (with FULL credit, of course!!)

Queenofdiy, Craftydeb and cute-anarchy you are the three angels who allowed me to easily make gifts for my husband's staff. He is the principal of a small school and he likes to give all his teachers and clerical staff a small thankyou gift at the end of each year. I usually do the shopping!! Over the years it has been coffee mugs, little vases, christmas ornaments among other things. At the end of last year they all received a shopping bag and they were thrilled!!!

So queenofdiy thanks for the original tute , craftydeb thanks for the handle method and cute-anarchy for the directions for folding without a pocket all oh so clever and oh so generous!!!!

Awww, thank you & wow, honored to be on a list with those two!  These bags do make the best gifts, I've been loving this tutorial for birthdays and holidays, and the trick on how to do the handles helped me so much too!  We have such a nice community here!

Thank you so much!  I made one for a friend and can't post pictures since it's a secret pal exchange!  But it was a perfect tutorial, easy to follow.  THANK YOU!

I made one of these bags and it turned out great.  Thanks for the wonderful tutorial.  I am so addicted to making these that I went out and bought enough fabric to make 10 more.

queenofdiy, thanks for posting this tutorial!  I have intended to make myself some bags since you first posted.  I finally made time to do it, and I'm so happy I did.  The tutorial was very easy to follow.  I look forward to making more bags in the future.  I didn't add a pocket this time, but I will on any others I make.  I also added a piece of elastic in the opening (3" folded in half and sewn in the seam) so I can hang the bag on the apparatus in the store.

Very cute bags. I want to try these bags so bad. I'm just a little intimidated by the posts people have made about the handles.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Fantastic idea!  I was thinking buttonholes on the handles, but this is much easier.  Thanks for the tip!  I've made several of these and the instructions are so easy and clear... no problems with the handles.  Don't try to overthink the handles -- just do exactly what the instructions say, even if it seems odd at first.  Once you start, the instructions make sense.  (At least to me they did! Wink )

Thank you.  I wouldn't let the handles issue stop me from trying.  I thought they were very "doable."
