* wooden handled bag

Posted on March 12th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


My sister got me a really cool piece of vintage fabric (might be a curtain) which I’ve been itching to do something with. It seemed like a good match to these awesome wooden handles from Tall Poppy (doesn’t look like they have them atm, though). Pattern was made up as I went along, and I’m most proud of a little clever construction trick I came up with to attach the lining at the same time as I made the tabs that go through the slots of the handles. The tabs go through the handles and attach with snaps so you could wash the fabric piece or even replace it with a different one. The only problem with it is that it doesn’t open very far.

    it might’ve helped to add slightly longer slits down the side to allow you to open the bag more! :)
