No Sew Hand Bag

Wooden Bag Handle
This bag is so quick to make and great for crafters who can not sew.
Start by working out how big you would like your bag to be, this bag is large and is 45cm's from the top to the bottom.
You will need to fold your fabric in half and cut out a rectangle. Our rectangle was 45cms x 30cms. But you can create what ever size and shape you like.
Once you have your rectangle shape it should have a fold at one of the smaller ends. This will be the loop that goes over your Bag handle.
To form the handle, cut out a small section from the folded end of the rectangle. You can see the design below. It does not have to be exactly the same as ours, as its really open to your own creativity. You could make it straight, curved, rounded. You can even alter the length of this handle. That's what makes this project so much fun, it really is unique and original.
Once you have cut the handle shape using some scissors you will need to cut the tying tassels out of the fabric.
This is done by making cuts into the Bag section around 1cm apart.
Once you have your cuts in both layers. Thread the folded end over your bag handle.
Then you simply tie two tassels together to form a knot. This knot closes the bag up.
Knot all the way around the bottom of the bag to close it up.
It's as simple as that.
This bag is a great project for girl guides or scout groups as it needs very little supervision and is cheap to make.
You can substitute the Bag Handle for large hole bangle which will work out much cheaper if you know where to buy discount jewelry.
