It would've been easier if I'd had a better foot for my machine-- it was hard to get the needle close enough to the handles.

you should definately invest in an 'adjustable zipper foot'
(check out this site) they make life so much easier!

love the bag too  Grin what fabric/s did you use?

I love that.  I should have stolen a wire hanger from my roommate while I still lived with her.  I only use plastic.  Hmmm.

That is really adorable, though.  I've been wanting to do a purse with a handle like that and I have some great fabric to do it, too.  That fabric on the leaf is awesome, the way it looks like veins.

Very clever solution!

Something that can help you sew close to the wires is a "zipper" foot. They look like this:

They allow you to stitch very close to encased cord (or coathangers!) and zippers, and you can move the foot part to the far left or right of what you're sewing..

A good site to learn about a bunch of different kinds of zipper feer is http://www.sewfancy.com/feet.htm

That's such a cute bag, and such a clever idea for handles! Nice work!

Another handle idea that works well for this type of bag (that's also cheap) is to go to your local home store and buy thin dowels.  They'll even cut them to size for you.  To "finish" them, try painting them (solid or in a pattern for more interest) or just varnish them.
