Paulig’s coffee package selection includes two different colors of yellow that I decided to combine into one bag. The material in the coffee packs has a matte finish and is sure to get dirty much faster than a glossy finish, but you have to be careful where to store it.
Top parts of 83 Paulig New York coffee packages and 85 yellow Brazil coffee bags have been used for this bag. I would have used 84 and 84, but I had too few New York bags. The strips cut from the coffee bags are 6,8 cm wide and are folded in triplicate, making the folded strip about 2,3 cm wide. The folds of the package remain visible on the strips at the top edges, giving it more texture to the surface of the solid weave.

The two-color squares can be arranged nicely in the bag so that the light and dark parts vary on the surface in every other small square in the weave. However, the corners of the bottom confuse the pattern a bit and at the ends of the bottom of the bag, squares of the same color hit each other. This, of course, is not seen when using a bag.
In the video you can see instructions on how to make the whole bag:
The squares of the bag are joined with a white gift ribbon, the top edge is finished with black anorak strings and the handles are made of 2 cm wide purple ribbon. The size of the bag is approx. 30 x 30 x 15 cm.
