This bag is constructed a little differently from our usual bags, in fact, it quite a bit different. But it’s relatively easy to make and it looks just great. We were unable to get Easter fabric from our local stores, which would have made it really relevant to Easter, so we just used some of our on-hand fabric stash.

The trick to this bag is the handles. We mucked it up a couple of times when putting the prototypes together, so just make sure you pay attention during that part of the video.
I left a 3-inch opening to allow for ease of stitching the handles together and to make it easier for beginners, but if you can manage with a smaller gap, by all means, do so.
A 2″-2½” gap will mean less fiddling to neaten the handles before topstitching them. It makes no difference to the finish of the bag, it’s just whatever you feel comfortable working with.
