My Nan gave me an old knitting bag which was plastic lined and so filthy. But it had these beautiful old handles.... so i unpicked the crusty old fabric and used it to make a pattern, painted the handles and used two materials from Nan's stash (which seemed made for each other) and voila! I love it.

Ooh, I love this fabric.  I also really love the shape of the bag.  I've been meaning to make a bag using handles for a while now, but so far, I'm too chicken.  Tongue Great job!

My Nan said I was "very clever"! This from a woman who can make a quilt - I felt very proud!
