Why is sin väska not correct?


"Sin" is a reflexive possessive pronoun. This would give the ownership of the bag (väska) to her. The sentence would read "She used to carry her (own) bag."

In the sentence, she is carrying the bag for someone else, a male. Thus, the possessive pronoun "hans" should be used.
