Wow, those bags are really great. I especially like the flower one. I came to this forum as a knitting knerd and have done very little sewing, but I would love to try to make something like this. Could you answer some questions for me?

Do you sew them by hand or with a machine?

How long do they usually take to finish?

Where are you selling them (Ebay, consignment store, etc)
and
What kind of cost-to-profit ratio are you getting?

The only purse handles I've found are kind of expensive and it seems like they would take away a chunk of your profit. On the other hand, I suppose they look more professional than just string handles so you could raise the selling price.

I sew them with a machine and finish them off with some hand stitching.
The first one i made took a little while but now i can almost do them with my eyes closed!  They take about an hour or 2.  Attaching the band around the opening is the trickiest part.
I sold this one on ebay for a lot less than i would have liked (my husband didn't put a high enough reserve on it) but hey i was just so pleased someone liked it enoguh to want to buy it!
As for the handles, i think it's best to spend that little extra on good ones.  If it looks good people will spend the money.
