Make sure you work stitches as directed into the turning chains at the end of the row. If youâ€™d like to make the bag bigger or smaller, the multiple of chains you need for Long Wave Stitch is 14 + 2. If you can sew, itâ€™s a good idea t make the lining. It will make the bag and the handles much stronger. Itâ€™s best made on the sewing machine, but hand stitching is fine.
