Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

Today I am here to show you how to sew a large bag with wooden dowel handles that is perfect for carrying your treasures to and fro. I personally really love this bag and am sure you can find a use for it as it is very spacious and sturdy. 

For this project you will need to precut the following pattern pieces:

(4) 20″ x 21″ Body Panels (two of which will be backed with quilt batting) 

(1) 3″ x 44″ Tie Closure

(8) 5″ x 8″ Dowel Tabs 

Plus:  a 36″ inch long 1/2″ wooden dowel cut in half

Approximate finished measurements:

16″ tall

13″ across the base 

18″ across the top

6″ deep

I hope you enjoy the project and will like, subscribe and share photos of your finished bags with our Facebook community:
