I made a couple of ramen noodle pouches using vinyl and a zipper
( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=163084.0 )
and I'd like to try the same method with a larger (potato chip) bag, but I think it will need handle(s) because it is so much larger.

My problem is, I don't know how to put the handles in--I can see how it should be in my mind, but I'm having a mental block on how to do it logically.

Anybody have any tips?

Thanks!

Ok, I'll try to explain this.  I don't know if it will make sense.  Here goes.

If you want to put 2 handles on you put your outside piece RSU, then one handle on top of that where you want it, then the zipper RSD on top of that and then the lining RSD on top of that.  Pin them all together, sew and flip around and repeat for the other side.  Does that make sense?

Yes, it does make sense.  It is what I was trying to do, but for some reason seeing it in print made it more do-able!! Thanks for the quick reply!!

Can't wait to find some time to try this!!!
