made from the same simplicity pattern several have referenced here...although I modified the pattern to make a finished edge inside the handle.  The pattern leaves it raw (why?Huh).
This is the front of the bag, the back matches the handles/lining. I added a slash-type pocket inside.  It's a christmas gift for some yet-to-be-determined friend. 

Ha!  I just noticed that all the bags I've posted so far are brown.... I'll try to avoid it on my next bag.

I really like this a lot.  The colors are fantastic, and nice job with the handle!  They're so tricky...

I love that fabric you used!!  Beautiful. Smiley
I think they leave the handle edges raw because they expect you to use a fabric that won't fray.  They recommend pleather and faux suede on the pattern if I remember correctly.  *However*, I started making this bag again with a non-fraying fabric, and it still didn't look right to me.  Go figure!

Ah, I love Craftster!  THank you for the kind words on the bag!! 

As far as how I made the handles, I did something very similar to what was done here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49706.0

I used a scrap of the pattern fabric as a lining for then handles. I was happy with how it turned out, only I had to make sure everything was lined up well to keep it neat.
