That fish fabric is so cool! Thanks for the great tutorial too. I have been reading and reading about how to make the handles in other tutorials, and my overstimulated brain just did not get it. But, thanks to you, it all makes perfect sense now! Yay.

Hello! I made another one, this time for a friend's birthday, and she was stoked with it. The exterior is beige corduroy, and the interior is a japanese cotton print. There's a pocket inside for cellphone and pens, and I attached a short loop of ribbon between the exterior and interior fabrics of the handle, with a 'dog clip' on the end for keys to be attached to. I experimented a little with using milk bottle plastic rectangles to stiffen the handles, and this worked well, although it was hard to cut bits of the plastic that weren't curved. I also used 2 layers of medium weight interfacing, and another rectangle of interfacing over the plastic around the handles.

The bag wasn't really made to be reversable, but it looked great either way, so I made sure the ribbon & key-clip could be flipped to the other side if she wanted to reverse the bag.

Thanks heaps again for the tutorial, I've totally got this down pat now!

Stargirl,

how did you stabilize your handles?  I made one of these bags following the Amy Butler pattern and it didn't mention stablizing the handles and while the bag turned out okay and handles get squished.

girly girl, my first cut out bag i just left the handle's too. it's ok for me, and it's a sentimental favorite, but i couldn't sell it or give it as a gift. the second one i made i used cereal boxes, and cut the hole out, and left a 3" frame sort of thing around the handle cutout. But i think If you wanted to really do it properly and according to seamster protocol, there's this really stiff sort of interface stuff, you find it where you get the regular interface.  that will probably help.

Great idea with the cereal boxes!  thanks!! I saw the same purse at a quilting store and they had padded the entire purse with batting.

i use interface for the whole thing and then after i cut out and iron the handles i iron on some square pieces of interface around the handle. it works really well. i just started to do that with the last few ive made. good luck making your own!

You can also put plastic canvas into the handles.  This would be done like with the cereal box but its water proof. Smiley
