Follow the Handle Facing Pattern to mark a centered U shape that's 7" down from the top edge and 4-1/2" wide. Position the handle-facing piece on the inside face of the body, centered and with the ends flush. Stitch the two layers of cloth together following the U marking on the handle facings and pivoting at the corners, as shown in Body Assembly Step 1. Cut out a rectangle 1/2" inside the stitching line, as indicated in Step 2. Clip corners as shown, then turn the facing to the outside and press. Topstitch the facing 1/2" from the frayed edges as shown in Step 3.
