1. Cut a print 2-1⁄2x42" strip in half, creating two 21"-long strips. Press each long edge under 1⁄4". Fold strips in half lengthwise with wrong sides inside to make two 1"-wide strips; press.
2. Place a 7⁄8x22" batting strip inside a folded print strip, tucking it under one 1⁄4" fold, to make a handle unit (Diagram 8). Repeat to make a second handle unit.
3. Edgestitch a handle unit with double lines of stitching 1⁄8" apart along long edges to make a handle (Diagram 8). Repeat to make a second handle.
