Add Handle and Buttons
1. Referring to Diagram 5, fold top raw edge of bag front over handle toward lining. Insert edge under lining. Topstitch close to lining edge to secure, stitching only a few inches at a time to ease fabric around handle.
2. Repeat Step 1 with remaining handle and top raw edge of bag back.
3. Hand-sew buttons on upper side edges of bag front. Loop fabric closures over buttons to close bag.
