I used a great variety of scraps that I have accumulated during my quilting projects
and I seem to save all kinds of fabrics. The lining was a brown print that I had gotten for a tablecloth project and I did purchase some fake leather fabric for the bottom. I stayed in the brown/blue/yellow/orange/tan/green fabrics
which means almost anything worked!

This is great! I'm glad the handles worked themselves out! My mom taught me to sew when I was young, and I'm sure your granddaughter will treasure these lessons as well!
