I just finished this and I thought I would post it right away, since I'm really getting into this. It's supercute, if I do say so myself...
The handle is a bit of a closure: the bigger handle slides into the smaller loop.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Thank you for all your comments!
As far as how to make the edging and the handles, here goes. I don't follow instructions and I learned to crochet in Italian so hopefully I have the terms correct...
For the edging, it's a single stitch, 3 chain stitches, skip a base stitch, and a single stitch on the next base stitch, all the way around. Hopefully that makes sense.
For the handles, they are two chains, one on either side of the purse, one longer and one just a shorter loop to pass the other one through, and each chain is covered with a single stitch, chain, single stitch, chain, all the way around.
Thanks again!

I thought I would add a more detailed picture of the edging and handles to see if it is a little clearer how they're done, since I don't think I explained them very well.
