I decided to make two handles out of cans, rather than one long knitted shoulder strap, this is the template I made and one of the handles.Each handle is in two pieces joined together with an edging of one row of single stitch in black. I have sandwiched a tent peg (bent end cut off) between the two pieces to strengthen them. Next I stitched the handles to the inside of the bag, and finished it off with a lining made from a skirt I got from a charity shop a long time ago. I'm very pleased with it.
