Woven twill tape makes the most lovely fabric. Filled with light and texture, this bag will become your go-to stash spot for just about anything, or the perfect little handbag with these lovely wooden handles! This bag is constructed in a rectangle of hand-woven fabric (no loom!) which is then hand stitched into place. It is straight forward in terms of technique (it's just over-under) but a little more time intensive in terms of weaving and hand-sewing (no machine required).
Measures 12.5" (32cm) high, 12.5" (32cm) wide without handles
Detailed video walks you though every step of weaving the bento bag. Instructions for video download will include supplemental written instructions to show how to add handles to your bag
