Supersize Fat Bottom Bag with home made handles (plastic tubing)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

This is my first show and tell on crochetville!

 

I made this FBB about two weeks ago after making a smaller one a week previous to that.

 

I'd looked for handles for the larger size but was put off somewhat with the prices!! :think

 

Anywhos, heres a pic of the finished bag, and there are more pics on my blog and a wee tut as well on how to make the handles. (Click the picture and it should take you directly to the post)

I hope someone finds it useful!

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Nicole

I love that bag and the handles are perfect. What a good idea you had to used plastic tubing.

Nice bag and the idea for the handles is terrific. Thanks for sharing that tip, I can see several of us running to the local pet store to grab some tubing now. :D

Wow!! Your FBB came out beautiful!! When I made my 1st FBB, I was in such a hurry to make one, I completely forgot about the handles. I had the same idea as you did. I went to our local hardware store and looked at all the plastic tubing they had. I finally found the size I wanted. I had thought of putting in some kind of liquid and glitter in the tubing, but then I thought what if something happens to the handles and the liquid spills out!! :eek I never thought of covering the tubing with crochet!! What a neat idea!! :hook

Thanks very much! Yeah it seems ok now, but I'm not sure how it'll be with the really warm weather, maybe next time i'll use cotton instead of acrylic yarn.

 

Thanks again :)
