    Oh your bag came out so cute! I have these handles in the pewter metal and the pattern I bought at the local quilt store. I just haven't had the time to search for the fabric. Maybe now I will get going with your inspiring bag.

    Clever, clever, clever. It is beautiful. Love the handles. I would have NEVER thought of something like that. I love clever people, wish I was one. Good job.

    Your purse came out beautiful! I bought a set of those handles at a quilt show last fall. Planned to make my daughter a purse to carry for her wedding. The wedding has been put on hold due to finances so maybe I will just make her a pretty cover for those handles like you did. Guess I need to start checking out the Salvation army type stores. Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea.

    Very smart. Those special bags can seriously hurt a girl's budget.
