I love both bags!! Those little side handles are a perfect addition.  I'll have to scour the response pages to see if you posted a pattern when I have a little time.  This is one of the nicest shopping bags I've seen.  Thanks for sharing.

No, the ones I made for Dad, the fabric was so thick that they didnt need it.
The hippo one is lighter weight, its ok for me, but I think some may prefer it with interfacing.
I guess it depends on the thickness of the fabric you are using, and how you want it to look.
Hope that helps
