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!

Material Notes

Amy Butler cotton fabric, generic green cotton lining, wooden handles, magnetic clip





My Mum, just for fun!

    Gotta love Amy Butler! She’s one of my favorite designers. I love the shape of the bag, great job. Did you use a pattern?

    Thanks for getting rid of a ugly macrame bag and making this cool bag. I’m starting to appreciate the art of recycling.
