To cre­ate a us­able bag, make lin­ing as for Trick-or-Treat Bag and fin­ish bag han­dles by fold­ing fab­ric un­der 1/4" and blind stitch closed be­fore at­tach­ing to bag. Press stitched piece from re­verse side, straight­en­ing as much as pos­si­ble. Trim stitched piece to 73/4" x 81/2". Turn un­der 1/2" seam al­lowance on top edge of stitched piece and hem­stitch so that stitch­ing is not vis­i­ble on the right side of fab­ric. Re­peat for top 81/2" edge of polka-dot fab­ric bag back. Place stitched piece and bag back right sides to­gether with hemmed edges match­ing. Us­ing a 1/2" seam al­lowance, sew to­gether along sides and bot­tom leav­ing top hemmed edge open. Trim seams. Turn bag right side out and press. Fold both polka-dot fab­ric han­dle pieces in half along length, wrong sides to­gether, and press. Us­ing photo as a guide, place ends of han­dles on top of bag. At­tach han­dles to top front and back of bag by sewing large crosses with DMC 816.
