Bag Handles
After making many quilted bags, I have discovered how to make the perfect handle. I wrap a strip of fabric around non-roll elastic and topstitch it down both sides and in the center.

Doesn't the handle stretch when you carry the bag?
raw edges
It looks like edges are folded under and ironed.
stiching
Do you stitch down the center first to keep it from shifting?
Raw edges?
Do you end up with a raw edge, or do you stitch it under first?

I use this method all the time. It works well. Glad to know that I am doing the right thing. Thanks
