Project Bag with Bamboo Handles

I have had these bamboo handles for years. I'm not even sure how many years. I finally made them into a bag this past week!



I used Tula Pink "Eden" fabric on the outside of the bag and "Birds and the Bees" fabric on the inside. It's amazing how well these two fabrics that were released years apart go together.


I used a fee tutorial from the Emmaline Bags blog called "The Great Granny Bag". The fabric is hand sewn around the handles.


This bag will be available at the Mother's Day Market this May 5th and 6th in Wainwright, Alberta and if it doesn't sell there it will be in my online shop afterwards. I think this would be a great knitting bag!


I am so happy that these bamboo handles are out of my stash and fulfilling their purpose! :)

  1. This is a great bag! It looks like it could be reversible too. A bag like this would be perfect for "hookers" (knitting/crocheting people), going to the beach, shopping, or traveling. I love it!

    1. Thank you Kathy! Yes, I think it could be reversible and I was thinking the same thing... it would be perfect for taking knitting projects along.

    1. Thank you so much Kay! :) I'm secretly hoping it doesn't sell or that my Mom buys it (at a discount of course.)

    1. Thank you Gina! :) I think a lot of people knit and crochet the handles into bags but that would take me until infinity to finish. LOL! :)

  4. What a pretty bag. I have several different bag handles in my supplies and was thinking how I would like to make use of them and not just leave them in my drawer stashed away. Thanks for the inspiration.
