Handle: artificial leather / or cotton fabric to sew the handle
once, for the handle: 8 cm=3,14” wide x 140 cm=55,11” long, rectangular shape, 2 times: 8cm=3,14 wide x 10 cm=3,93 long, rectangular shape
Wooden rings (curtain): 2 pieces, size approx: 2 cm=0,78” internal diameter, 3,5 cm=1,37” external diameter. It is usually used to hang curtains.
Buttons, small glass beads, yarn, needle, embroidery needle
Lining: cotton fabric
2 times: approx. 27 x 27 cm = 10,64” x 10,64” for the lining of the bag
2 times: approx. 17 x 17 cm = 6,69” x 6,69” for the inside pocket if you want to sew it
You can make the bag without lining too. In that case you have to sew the handle accessories into the crocheted bag. But I think it is better to sew a simple lining for the bag. It will be more durable.
