  3. With right sides together, pin and sew from top to bottom. Backstitch at the beginning and end to secure the stitch. Press seam open. Turn the piece right-side out. Press so the seam is in the back.

  6. Cut 3 pieces of twine about 30” long or whatever you choose for handles.  Before you begin to braid, insert one end of the twine into the hole and knot. Then braid to desired length. Tie off the end using one piece of the braid. Tape the end of the twine and insert it, from the inside of the bag, into the opposite hole to make a handle. Knot it from the outside. You are finished and have a cute little goodie bag.
