The handle was made with red canvas material.
I should have enough handbags, I've made 12 recently and a few more cut out and ready to sew just as soon as I heal from eye surgery. Right now, it's difficult to see what I'm typing. I'm not trying to keep up with my mother, she has made 75+ this year. You can see some of the handbags my mother has made here: http://wwwstampedimpressions.blogspot.com/2014/04/handbags-by-jo.html
