you could buy some of those nifty handles they sell at michael's or walmart...i'm not sure how to attach them because i've never tried...but you could check it out. personally i love long straps on bags so they hang to my knees or just above that so i'm probably not much help, sorry <3

Awesome!!!   How long does one of those babies take to make?!

I'd probably buy something like that....I think wooden handles would be cool...

Looking good!

I sewed the handles of mine to the lining before I attached the lining to the magazine part. I have thought about the possibility of using gromets or rivets. Perhaps those would work for you?

*how much do u think i should charge for them*

Well, I wouldn't even consider making one for under $50, but I think you wouldn't be able to get that much for them. I think you could sell them for $25 to $30, though. I get compliments on mine every time I carry it, so I know there'd be a market for them!

I would suggest using those wooden curved handles.  If you have Joann's in your area, they have a great selection of handles.  They even have pearls.  That might look nice too.  Take the bag with you when you're picking out handles.

Did you still use 20 magazine strips like you did in the original tutorial?And how did you attach your lining?Great purse.

And for charging I`d say about $30.Maybe try selling one on Ebay and see how much they pay for it and that might give you a better idea.
