As I was putting away the left over fabric from the Jen bag, I noticed this piece of wool I picked up at the local wool mill. It seemed like a good size to make into a bag, so I bought it for about $3 and put it in my stash to do some time. I didn't really have a plan of what to line it with or how it would end up, but when I was putting away this lining fabric, I realized that it matched really well and the scrap is about the same size as the wool piece! So, I think I will use it. But, I have no idea what to do for a strap/handles. I just can't picture it. Any one have any suggestions???? I need help!


  1. What about some wood handles like these -

    I like the first one or the one directly below it. That site also has acrylic and chains that would be an option but I think the wool with the wood would look nice. And then you can sell it on etsy...and I can buy it. :)

    Keep up all the good work!

  2. I think you are right. I kind of like the rectangle ones too. I looked at wood handles at Joann's but they just weren't quite right. Thanks!

  3. OOoooo... I like the idea of the wooden handles! If you could find some cute ones, they would be great with that fabric!
