Large grocery bag with bamboo handles

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I used bamboo canes from old garment bags - the ones for suits etc that folds halfway down the middle. Recycling! Using bamboo canes as a handle really distributes the weight and as long as your seams are strong, the bag can take a lot of weight as there is less strain in the handles. It's also makes it a lot easier on you hands and wrists when carrying a heavy weight!

What you will need

  • Medium weight cotton fabric

Q&A with Birka

Clara101 asked:
I would love to have this pattern. Will you share?
Birka answered:
I haven't got a pattern for it, I just made it up as I went along as a test :) I decided how big I wanted the bottom to be by thinking about what I normally put in my grocery bag and that sort of decided the rest.
