I took a 2-day class at my LQS last May and produced an almost done Maxwell Bag. All I needed to do was the handle and some finishing touches. I spent some time on Sunday working on the handle.
I spent some time wrangling the cord in the fabric tube and finally gave up. I’ll try to do more in the evenings. My next bag class is on Saturday and if I do not have these handles wrapped, I’m going to see if the instructor has an easier way to do this.
