black bag with brown edge and handles


finally after many months my bag is ready. well ready ….. i do not want to line it, but actually it is really necessary to do.


the bag has a square bottom and for the handles i made tunnels. to close the bag, i have created two button closures. when the bag is full of goodies, then it is possible to unfold the first closure and then an additional buttonhole can be used (see photos below).

if I’m honest, i like the bag but it is not really my thing, for me that is one reason to make another bag… some day. maybe with this bag i can make someone else happy.

here are some pictures for you to look at, unfortunately the brown color does not look very well on the photos.

have a great weekend!

  17. Would it work as a project bag or as a storage bag for stash? If you lined it with a thick enough fabric you wouldn’t have to worry about needles poking through.
