Attach the Handles to the Tote Bag

Sherri Osborn
Lay the tote bag on it's side. At the top edge of the tote bag, measure in 2" from each seam. Mark these spots with a straight pin. Line up the outside edge of one end of a handle with one of the straight pins. Hold the end of the handle so it lines up with the top edge of the tote bag and pin in place. Pin the other end of the handle in place next to the other straight pin using this same method. Make sure the side of the handle with the seam is facing up at this point.

Repeat this on the other side of the tote bag for the other handle.

Using a 1/2-inch seam allowance, stitch around the top edge of the bag to secure the handles in place.
