If I Only Had a Brain!

Remember the other day when I ironed the tote bag and the lining shrunk up on me and got holes in it? Okay, I put new lining in the bag and it turned out fine. I went to make a second matching bag and all's good, I'm almost done and then............I most of lost my brains somewhere!
The handles on the second bag are twisted. I am so mad at myself!! I really think I need a new brain! I don't know what my problem is?!?!? I can't even rip them out and start over again without taking the whole bag and lining apart.
So please, if anyone knows where my brain is please let me know
and while your at it I'll take my old body back too!!

Look, no double chin and no belly!

(This is me when I turned 30. I had just worked very hard and lost 40lbs. after I had my daughter Lexi.)

Hi Sherry
How infuriating to find the twisted handles. If it's any consolation the bags look great and I am sure the one with twisted handles is not that noticable once the bag is being used. I love the stripey fabric.
WOW you look beautiful in the picture. Thanks for showing us.
