I recently started sewing again (my machine had been broken for a year or so) and I've been making some bags. I've been trying to make a bag based on this tutorial. So far, I've been unsuccessful because I have such a hard time sewing the fabric on the handles and getting it to stay.  This is what I came up with for my mom for mother's day:




inside of bag (with pockets)


close up of stitching on handles.  You can see where the fabric puckered out and didn't stay put.  Also, I don't like how I can't get a clean circle on the handles.

Thanks for looking!

For the circles you can use anything round you have in the house to trace, like a coffee cup, drinking glass, bowl, etc.  I love to use things I have laying around to make patterns from.
