I cut these wooden handles off an op-shop (Aussie for “thrifted”!) macrame bag and made a new, lined cotton bag. The bottom of the bag has a dart for shape and the top is pleated. A little fold-over section secures the handles, with a magnetic clasp for keeping it shut.
In the close-ups, you can see my real shoddy stitching! Horray!
