HOUSTON! We Have PRODUCT!
Okay....tis me again!
I made my handles 20 inches long. I did not use interfacing on them because I doubled them over. The width is 1 inch finished. I attached them to the right side of the bag facing down. I then stitched them down. I then placed one bag inside of the other with the right sides facing. At this point, make sure your handles are on the INSIDE. Do not ask how I know this trick. I stitched around the top. I left a 4 inch hole so that I could turn the tote inside out. It is much like birthing a baby if you make that hole any smaller. After I turned it right side out, I measured the bottom and cut a piece of cardboard the same size. I then curved my cardboard and worked it through the hole and into the bottom of the tote so that it would have good bottom support. I then ran a top stitch around the entire top of the tote. Doing that closed up my 4 inch hole so that it did not show anymore.
I know some babygator who is going to like this tote for her birthday. She has been bugging me to make her something with pink camo fabric for the longest!!!
I am going to be gone for a few hours. Bebo and I are going to meet Babygator for supper!
So...be honest with your opinions and help me to learn how to do things better!
