Here you go gals. As you can see, the handles are VERY scrunchy, especially compared to my 05 skyblue handles. It just feels awful against my fingers. Cornflower HANDLES My 05 skyblue handles (much smoother) Puckering in the back from bad sewing technique? The good news is that Elizabeth Thomas is A SWEETHEART and is working with me to either exchange this or return it. She checked her inventory and she mentioned that many of her b-bags have the same scrunchy handles. Weird huh?!
