|Julia investigating the contents of her purse|
I bought 2 packs of plastic bangle bracelets at the dollar store so I would have two of each color bangle to use for the purse handles. Each set came with two rings also. I put the rings in tiny zip-top bags and put them inside the purses along with bubble bath, lip balm, a small box of crayons, etc.
In retrospect I guess the pattern actually called for thin metal bangle bracelets, or possibly plastic that looks like metal. Because I used these thicker plastic ones, I found it easier to attach the handles by hand rather than machine. But I still do like the look of these plastic ones.
