Now first off is my extra long sides! what do I do do I cut it off or do I extend it and make it the handle. My co worker wants it even though it is a duffle bag. She suggested i cut off the extra and put some extra long wooden handles on it. She even offered to make the handles. it is a pretty bag. it is just huge! So if you read my blog, come my blog on accident please tell me what you would do. Thank you.
