For turning handles, if you keep a piece of twine or yarn or string or ribbon inside while you sew with the end of the string sticking out either end, then you tie or sew the string to one end and pull fom the other. make sense?

I love this! I've always wanted a jeans purse (the one's they have in stores are pretty lame though...) This one is different and I love it!
Great job! Smiley

This is extremely creative, have you thought of converting other articles of clothing for the same purpose, you are a natural!

You did a really nice job on this bag. It's unique and much different than all of the other jean purses you see everywhere

I really like it also! Cheesy

I would love to see a pic of the whole thing, when you can, just to see how big it is, etc.  It's so pretty, especially the scarf/belt!!

Just a tip, to add to the "strap" comments: 
I do have a tube turner, but it still requires some work if you're using thicker, heavier fabrics (unless I'm not using it right!) when turning rightside out.  Anyway, what I do is press the strap, length-wise, in half (wrong sides together), then unfold and press the both long edges in (maybe about 1/4" to 1/2", depending on the width of your strap), then press it in half wrong sides together again, with the edges folded in, and then stitch along both long edges.  This covers stitching it together plus your top-stitching all at once.  Hope this makes sense!!

Anyway...very cute bag!! Cheesy
