Other: 7 inch D shape bag handles.

Connect the three Zippy looms together. Using both MC and CC together throughout.
Leave a 12 inch yarn tail of the Ewrap cast on from left to right.
Row 1: knit to the end of row.
Row 2: knit to the end of row.
Row 3: purl to the end of row.
Row 4-30: knit to the end row.
Row 31: purl to the end of row.

Bind off with basic bind off method; leave a 12 tail to use for sewing the handle in place.
Using the yarn tail at cast on edge, fold the material over the handle and sew the handle in place. Do the same at the bind off edge with the second handle.
Thread the tapestry needle with MC yarn, fold the bag (so the two handles meet) and mattress stitch seam the sides of the bag—note, start the mattress stitch about 1 inch down from the handle (if you start seaming by the handle, you won’t be able to open the bag).
Weave all ends in.
