* 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! :)

    I’m usually a lurker but I have to tell you how inspiring you are. So many amazing projects. And this one I MUST try my own version of. Love the fabric, the handles, the shape. Just too groovy! Thanks for sharing.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
