Make sure you work stitches as directed into the turning chains at the end of the row. If you’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, it’s a good idea to make the lining. It will make the bag and the handles much stronger. It’s best made on the sewing machine, but hand stitching is fine.
