5. Now, for the inner handles. This part can be tricky. Do not just sew around the inner curve: it may seem like it is obviously going to work, but it wont. You have to sandwich one half of the handle inside the other half. This is how I do it, so I do not get confused: Turn the lining to the inside of the bag, so wrong sides are together. From the opening in the hem lining, grab the seam allowance on the inner part of the handles so right sides are facing. With this pinched, pull your hand back out the linig hem.
