I posted instructions for a different way to do the handles at:

and Kaymadben added her even easier tip.
Check it out - it goes sooooo quickly.

very cute. i'm gonna make some of these this week hopefully. did you use interfacing or is the bag sturdy enough with the lining alone?

I posted a tutorial about how to make those handles loads easier - and perfect each time..
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257229.0
As much as I love the singlet the handles were a major issue for me so my friend and I figured it out and it has worked perfectly every time since and it's how I teach my friends to do it - no stress each time!  Now we all love the singlet and the Publix down the road gets a kick out of my granny fabric bags.. ah not that I am a granny cause I am not although technically I *am* old enough that I *could* be a granny but hey I started late so I get to be a really really old granny someday Cheesy  nonetheless.... if you get flustered with the handles give my way a go.  Everything else is exactly the same - I just do those handles differently.

I am extremely grateful to queenofdiy for the original tutorial for these. I made 14 for my husband to give as gifts to his staff (he is a school principal) and I have made 8 to give as gifts myself plus two for me!!!!!

I heartily recommend craftydeb's handle method and thank her for it - it is so easy!!!!

I also have to thank cute_anarchy. I used her method of folding the bags without adding the pockets.

Aww thanks!  It really is the easy way to go.  I read so many people having issues with the handle before I had even made my first one and I could not grasp the handle AT ALL.  No matter what I did I couldn't do it... so I had a friend of mine try it out and she couldn't do it so we took care of it - perfect each and every time.

My tutorial did get lost in the shuffle though.  I should ask the mods to put the tutorial up in the tutorial section directly under the singlet tutorial.. hmmm. That would help a lot of people I think!

And if you assembly line those babies they go by fast!!  I have made about 3 dozen of them I think... or darn near close to them.  My friend I had over yesterday is working on her first dozen and breezing through them and she is a novice sewer..

Craftydeb - I was able to visualise queenofdiy's original handle method and could work it out (there were some similarities to tinyhappy's shoulder bag handle) but when I read your handle method and gave it a try its an absolute breeze! I have even managed to use the method on tinyhappy's tute (albeit that it is a bit tricky with the long handles but it gives a much better finish).

I'm sitting a hair taller in my seat. Cheesy
It really does give a nicer finish.. Before if the layers were off a wee bit it was wonky here or there but no matter what the way Susan and I wonkered it we still got a good finish.
I'm so glad I could lend a hand!
I'll see about contacting the mods to add my tutorial to the list. That might help bring it back to life!
