I'm going to confess that somewhere during sewing the handles on and flipping right side out my handles ended up inside the bag never to be seen again..... They were stunningly beautiful handles too. Bummer!
I once made a stuffed bunny rabbit for my then infant daughter and managed to sew it's head on backwards AND inside out so today's faux pas comes as no shock. The bunny looked like something out of a horror movie. I was all for leaving it as it was because by that stage I was fed up with sewing it but my Mum kept muttering comments about my child needing "years of therapy" if I didn't fix it. Pfffttttt...
I'm going to try to work out what the heck I did to make disappearing handles and then make one of these in a bigger size for a knitting bag for a Christmas present. Or I could just post a tutorial about how to make disappearing handles and become famous.
AWOL handles aside I'm pretty happy with the finished item. It'll make cute "wrapping" for a Christmas present, and my Mum can use it later to collect clipped threads when she is sewing.
Now I'm going to get on with what I was supposed to be doing all along- quilting.
