Crochet a pair of handles with the pattern above. You may cushion the handles with tiny rubber tube or just leave them empty. I salvaged the rubber tube from a hat packaging, you may buy them from hardware shop (compressed air section) or get a slightly larger diameter and softer material from aquarium section. Or, you can use resilient plastic strip (some call it corset bone or fish bone). Gather and sew the sides of the handle together 2″ from the rounded end.

Pin the handles in place on the tote, about 7″ apart at the center of the tote. Sew the handles onto the tote, hide twine. You may line the tote with fabric. This completes the Star Stitch Tote in jute twine.
