I made this round straw bag from two IKEA place mats. Perfect for summer.
- 2 SOARÉ place mats €4 each
SOARÉ place mat | IKEA.com
- Jute string
All bought in a bazaar.
Place mats cost €8. The handles cost €3.50, felt €0.60 and jute €0.75
To join the two place mats I cut a strip of felt about 8 cm wide and I glued strips of jute strings on to it. This makes it a better match to the straw place mats.
Then, I glued the felt around the place mats and sewed both pieces together. I repeated this with the other place mat.
The handles are sewn onto the place mats. You can also make your own handles out of jute strings.
And that’s it! Straw bag done.
